Depression or Just the Blues?

Depression or Just the Blues? Tagged with:

Depression and feeling blue are sometimes mistakenly used interchangeable. The truth is depression is much more serious than the occasional blue feeling. Feeling “blue” is very common. Everyone feels sad or down at some point and these feelings will typically pass within a few days. Depression, on the other hand is a serious mental health disorder; and approximately 17 million adults are diagnosed every year. When a person has major depressive disorder, they experience a severely depressed mood, which can persist two weeks or more. Their symptoms interfere with their daily functioning, and cause distress for both the person with the disorder and those who care about him or her.
