Feeling “Down” or “Depressed”?

Many South Africans of all races, areas, sex, and cultures can suffer from depression and anxiety, so if you are one of those people you are not alone
and there is help for you.

DID you know?:

1 in 10 people will have depression in their life, but most people do not get the help they need even though treatment can help take the depression away. People often don’t seek help because:

•Depression is often not seen as a real illness
•Many people blame themselves and think they are weak
•People are scared and too embarrassed to ask for help
•And finally, depression is often not spotted or seen as another illness

Signs of Depression:

•Sadness most of the time. Feeling anxious, or “empty” mood
•Feelings of hopelessness, about life
•Feelings of guilt, or feeling helpless.
•Loss of interest or pleasure in hobbies and activities that were once enjoyed,
•Early-morning awakening, or oversleeping
•Losing weight by not eating or gaining weight by over eating.
•Less energy than usual, tired all the time, being “slowed down”
•Thoughts of death or suicide; suicide attempts
•Restlessness, irritability, or anger.
•Difficulty concentrating, remembering things or making decisions
