What exactly is Depression?

Depression is a psychological condition that is relatively common. About 20% of people experience depression at some point in their lives. Although depression can occur at any time in your life, it often starts between the age of eighteen and twenty years old. Women generally suffer more from depression than men.

We often think of depression as gloomy feelings, but there are many other symptoms. Think for example of lethargy, insomnia and loss of concentration. These symptoms are often so severe that they harm your daily functioning.

A depression is well treatable and there are many different ways to treat a depression. Research has shown that conversational therapy, medication and running therapy can all help to treat depression.
