Sad on Couch

Depression (major depressive disorder) is a widespread medical illness that negatively affects the way you feel, how you think, and how you behave. 

Depression makes you feel intense and prolonged sadness and can lead to both emotional and physical complications. People who have depression frequently find it hard or even impossible to function either at work or at home. 

You lose interest in what brings you happiness, so there’s nowhere to find relief from your pain. Severe depression can cause you to feel such extreme hopelessness and despair that suicide seems like the only solution. 

Thankfully, with the right treatment and support at Sophroneo, you can recover from depression.

Depression symptoms are likely to include:

  • Constant low mood

  • Changes in appetite 

  • Changes in sleep patterns

  • Loss of energy

  • Chronic fatigue

  • Hand-wringing or pacing

  • Slowed movements

  • Feeling worthless or guilty

  • Difficulty thinking

  • Problems concentrating 

Symptoms can vary; for example, while some people find they lose their appetite, others start overeating. You might find you’re struggling to sleep or spend increasing amounts of time asleep.

If you’ve experienced these symptoms for two weeks or more, you could have depression. However, it’s important to rule out other conditions that can cause similar symptoms, such as hypothyroidism or nutrient deficiencies.


There are several possible causes for depression. An imbalance in neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin is a likely cause of depression, and there may well be a genetic link that makes some people more likely to develop depression. 

If you have low self-esteem or struggle to manage stress, that can make you more likely to experience depression. Environmental factors can also make you more vulnerable to depression, for example:

  • Violence

  • Abuse

  • Neglect 

  • Poverty


Depression is a common problem and can affect anyone at any stage in life, but many people experience their first bout during their teens or twenties.
