Depression is a common illness which affects millions of people in the country each year. It is characterised by persistent low mood, and the loss of pleasure in previously pleasurable activities. In severe cases, patients may present with feelings of hopelessness and suicidal thoughts, and may feel that “there is no way out”. Although effective treatments are available, depression is often undiagnosed and under-treated. Encouragingly, most people are able to make a full recovery, with the right treatment plan and support.
