Approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will suffer from a mental health problem at any one
time. Depression can leave you feeling unable to cope with negative feelings which can cause you
to put life on hold and withdraw from the outside world.
Depression often starts gradually so that you do not realise anything is wrong, but as time goes on we start to withdraw more and more from everyday situations, refusing to engage with others, pushing away friends and relatives. People suffering from depression usually also have feelings of despair and inability to see how their situation could change for the better.
It takes away your confidence and ability to feel in control to make rational decisions, instead becoming focused on negative thoughts and forecasting the worst case scenarios, often leaving you hopeless and unable to see a way out. Depression can leave you feeling like you are stuck under a dark cloud which can be quite isolating.
Symptoms such as:
- Negative thinking, negative forecasting, or negative introspection.
- Feeling disconnected from the real world.
- Low energy levels.
- Weight loss or weight gain.
- Difficulties in thinking and concentrating.
- Sleep problems.
- Loss of pleasure or interest in usual activities.
