What is Depression?

Depression is a mood disorder that makes you sad, but it is different than normal sadness. Depression can make it hard for you to work, study, or do everyday tasks.

Mood disorders, such as depression and bipolar disorder, are caused by problems with “neurotransmitters.” These are chemicals in the brain that can affect your emotions. Treatments for mood disorders seem to work by changing the levels of certain neurotransmitters.

How Do I Know If I'm Depressed?

Depressed people feel down most of the time for at least 2 weeks. They also have at least 1 of these 2 symptoms:

They no longer enjoy or care about doing the things they used to like to do.

They feel sad, down, hopeless, or cranky most of the day, almost every day.

Sleep too much or too little

Feel tired or like you have no energy
