Depression and Anxiety Swindon

Depression is a common disorder that affects how you feel, think, and act. It can cause persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and loss of interest in things you used to enjoy.

Depression can also interfere with your daily functioning and well-being. Depression is not a sign of weakness or a character flaw. It is a treatable condition that can be managed with medication, psychotherapy, or both.
There are different types of depression, some of which require medical intervention, if you feel you are having a depressive episode, it is advisable to seek help. 
 
Some of the common symptoms of depression include:

  • Feeling sad, empty, or tearful most of the time

  • Losing interest or pleasure in activities you used to enjoy

  • Having trouble sleeping or sleeping too much

  • Feeling tired or low in energy

  • Having changes in your appetite or weight

  • Feeling guilty, worthless, or hopeless

  • Having difficulty concentrating, remembering, or making decisions

  • Having negative thoughts

 
Depression can be caused by a combination of biological, psychological, and social factors. Some of the possible causes of depression include:
