Mood Disorders / Depression
Are you experiencing low energy levels, unexplained sadness or finding it hard to motivate yourself?
Are you losing interest easily in activities you usually enjoy or have difficulty listening/concentrating?
Are you having difficulty seeing the positive and defaulting to negative thinking?
Have you withdrawn from interacting with friends and family?
People often find that symptoms of depression can be the accumulation of lots of small things over time, but equally one large event such as marriage breakdown can quickly trigger extended periods of low mood. It’s important to recognise that if some of these issues happen together over several weeks or are typically out of character for you, then depressive symptoms could be setting in.
