These feelings often happen when you lose a job, children move out of the house, during divorce, with a death in the family, or during retirement. But when changes in mood and behavior interfere with one’s ability to work, sleep, eat, and enjoy once pleasurable activities, it could be a sign of depression.
This week, communities across the country are raising awareness about depression and mental illness. And, today is National Depression Screening Day.
