Depression isn't your fault; you are not alone. There is hope. You can feel better.
You may feel uncomfortable talking about how you feel. But it is important to share your concerns with your health care provider.
Clinical depression is a serious medical illness. It's not something you have made up in your head. It's more than just feeling "down" or "blue" for a few days.
Depression can include feelings of hopelessness or worthlessness and even thoughts of suicide. These feelings can go on for weeks or months. Depression can change your mood and your thoughts, leaving you feeling stuck in a rut. It can even affect how often you become ill, or how well you heal from a major illness.
There is no single cause for depression. It likely results from a combination of sources. Depression can run in the family or be caused by life events (such as a death, changing jobs, giving birth, moving or an illness).
