What are the 12 signs of depression?


Depression can manifest in a variety of ways and the symptoms can differ from person to person. However, here are some common signs of depression:

  1. Persistent feelings of sadness or emptiness
  2. Loss of interest or pleasure in activities that were once enjoyable
  3. Significant changes in appetite or weight
  4. Insomnia or excessive sleeping
  5. Fatigue or lack of energy
  6. Feelings of worthlessness or excessive guilt
  7. Difficulty thinking, concentrating, or making decisions
  8. Restlessness or agitation
  9. Irritability or mood swings
  10. Loss of libido or sexual desire
  11. Physical symptoms such as headaches, digestive problems, and chronic pain
  12. Recurrent thoughts of death or suicide

It’s important to note that experiencing one or more of these symptoms does not necessarily mean that a person has depression, and only a qualified mental health professional can provide a diagnosis. If you or someone you know is experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s important to seek help from a healthcare provider.
