Depression is more than just a low mood - it's a serious illness.
While we all feel sad, moody or low from time to time, some people experience these feelings intensely, for long periods of time and often without reason.
People with depression find it hard to function every day and may be reluctant to participate in activities they once enjoyed.
Depression is one of the most common of all mental health problems.
One in five people experience depression at some stage of their lives.
We participate in a numbers of events during the year which focus on menatl health, including R U OK Day? These are usually run in the month of October to coincide with Mental Health week.
