In addition to this, we also actively encourage those that live with, or care for someone with depression and/or anxiety to partake in this community in order that they learn more about these health concerns.This website is independent, non profit making and is free for all to use.The signs of depression include prolonged sadness, hopelessness, low self-esteem, restlessness, anxiety and frustration.You may lack the energy to do the things that once made you happy or to even get out of bed some days. Depression can strike anyone at any time, perhaps from a chemical imbalance, traumatic life event, or postpartum, to name a few.
Even more unfortunate, is that depression is a highly treatable illness, but studies also show that, "About 80% of the people suffering from depression now are not receiving any kind of medical treatment." Medical treatment includes the use of medications to balance out whatever chemicals in your brain are making you depressed, but also includes therapy, self help groups and depression support groups.
