A person dealing with depression will often have unpredictable mood swings. Sometimes they feel overwhelmed, sometimes they can get angry for the silliest things and they might also show constant irritability.
A person with depression will often feel hopeless and worthless. They always talk bad about themselves and constantly mention their failures in life.
Talking of suicides or regular attempts of suicide are signs of depression too. If somebody you know has inflicted self harm more than twice, talk to that person and get him/her professional help.
If you or anybody you know finds even the simplest of daily tasks difficult, this can be a sign. Energy levels are low and there is a loss of interest in any favourite activities.
A change in appetite or sleep is also a sign of depression. Getting no sleep at all or over sleeping can be because the person is depressed. The same rule applies to eating as well. Loss of appetite or over-eating is a depression symptom as well.
These are the 5 signs that will help you identify depression. Look out for people and extend all the love and support towards them. Depression patients need somebody to talk to. Be that person.
