Depression can be experienced differently by different people. For some people it is so subtle, they don’t even realise that what they are experiencing is a form of depression. For others, it is so debilitating that it can affect every area of their life.
So are you someone who feels flat or down or extremely overwhelmed with deep sadness that you don’t know what to do? Depression is something that can exist in isolation but usually it exists in conjunction with anxiety and/ or addiction.

It has been found that women are about twice as likely as men to develop major depression. They also have higher rates of seasonal affective disorder, depressive symptoms in bipolar disorder, and dysthymia (chronic depression).

The peak onset of depressive disorders in women coincides with their reproductive years (between the ages of 25 to 44 years of age), hormonal risk factors may play a role.
