Know the Signs of Depression

There are times in life when we feel “depressed” or down. Usually these feelings pass, but sometimes they don’t. When these feelings linger, they can leave us feeling hopeless. A feeling of emptiness may be a sign of a treatable medical illness called depression. 

Talk to your doctor about depression if:

  • You feel hopeless or down every day for more than two weeks 
  • You believe these feelings get in the way of work or relationships 
  • You notice major changes in sleeping, eating, weight, energy level or concentration
