What is Depression?

"It (depression) is not a fleeting sadness but a pervasive and relentless sense of despair. A lack of interest in life accompanied by weight loss, loss of appetite, feelings of uselessness and sleep disturbance are some of the more common symptoms. People with depression are frequently told to 'just snap out of it' but it's not that easy.

There can be an array of causes – it can be due to stresses in the home or at work, or it can just come out of the blue. Sometimes family history can be a major factor."

– Professor Scott Henderson, Director of NHMRC Centre for Mental Health Research at ANU

Depression may be described as feeling sad, blue, unhappy, miserable, or down in the dumps. Most of us feel this way at one time or another for short periods.

Clinical depression is a mood disorder in which feelings of sadness, loss, anger, or frustration interfere with everyday life for weeks or more.
