Depression Factsheet – available in English, Māori, Samoan and Tongan languages
In life, feeling down or miserable sometimes is normal. But if these feelings become painful, we may experience an aching heart, mind, body and spirit. We could have trouble sleeping or a change in appetite. We might withdraw from families and friends, and lose hope.
This could be depression, especially if it lasts longer than a couple of weeks.
Depression is very common. It can affect relationships with family and friends and our ability to work or go to school. It can also lead to suicide.
