Depression is the third most common reason for a visit to the GP in Britain. It is the most common psychiatric disorder by far. At any given point, it is estimated that 1 in every 10 people is living with depression or anxiety. Almost 1 in every 5 people will suffer an episode of depression in the course of their lifetime, and around two thirds of adults will experience a depressed mood significant enough to interfere with their normal life. Women are around twice as likely as men to be depressed.
Trying to cope amidst a chronic feeling of low mood, physical tiredness or extreme anxiety can be tough. Persistent bad feelings about oneself and life in general are draining, unhelpful and most importantly, not your fault.
Depression can affect people of all ages and from all walks of life and circumstances.
