It is necessary to pay attention to the difference between feeling depressed and depression. Everyone has reasons to feel depressed sometimes; having a bad day, rainy weather, or arguing with a partner. Depression is much more than the mood that these situations cause.
Symptoms that occur within a period of at least 2 weeks greatly affect the functionality of the person. These symptoms are; feeling sad and depressed, Anhedonia (decreased interest in pleasurable activities and activities), insomnia, fatigue, change in appetite, attention problems, thoughts of worthlessness and guilt, suicide attempts. Depression, which is caused by genetic, physiological and psychosocial factors, is a disease that responds to treatment. Long-term research has demonstrated the effectiveness of psychotherapy and drug therapy.
