Depression is the most common psychiatric disorder experienced by humans. Being a mood disorder, it includes a sense of sadness that can last up to weeks or even months. Depression can hinder your daily lifestyle and deprive you of energy, sleep, concentration, and appetite. It can also cause a feeling of withdrawal from the activities you like, the friends and family you love.

Depression doesn't discriminate and can affect anyone irrespective of their age, gender, and circumstance. However, women are far more likely to get depressed in comparison to men. Coping with a mood disorder such as depression can get extremely difficult. Persistent negative feelings with any fault of your own can be draining.

It has been estimated that 1 in every 10 people is living with either depression or anxiety and almost 1 in 5 people will suffer from an episode of depression in their lifetime. Along with that, as much as two-thirds of people are likely to experience a significant depressed mood that will affect their normal life.

Depression can be very challenging for those who experience it. Moving beyond it, even with encouragement from your loved ones can sometimes make things worse. The feeling of isolation that one feels can’t be measured through words. Therapy plays a crucial role in the physical and mental wellbeing of an individual with depression. It can provide emotional support, tools that can help one in finding herself/himself, and happiness again because every person deserves to lead a fulfilling life.
