Know the signs of depression

There are times in life when we feel “depressed” or down. These feelings tend to pass. Sometimes they don’t. When they stay, we can feel hopeless. 

A feeling of emptiness may be a sign of a treatable medical illness called depression.

Talk to your primary care provider if:

  • You feel hopeless or down every day for more than two weeks.
  • You believe this state of mind affects your daily life.
  • Your sleep schedule, appetite, weight, energy level or focus changes.
