++ Depression Awareness by dimruthien ++ Depression Awareness by dimruthien
Clinical depression (also called major-depressive disorder or unipolar depression) is a common psychiatric disorder, characterized by a persistent lowering of mood, loss of interest in usual activities and diminished ability to experience pleasure.

While the term "depression" is commonly used to describe a temporary decreased mood when one "feels blue", clinical depression is a serious illness that involves the body, mood, and thoughts and that cannot simply be willed or wished away. It is often a disabling disease that affects a person's work, family and school life, sleeping and eating habits, general health and ability to enjoy life.[1] The course of clinical depression varies widely: depression can be a once in a life-time event or have multiple recurrences, it can appear either gradually or suddenly, and either last for few months or be a life-long disorder. Having depression is a major risk factor for suicide; in addition, people with depression suffer from higher mortality from other causes.

Thank you so much! I myself suffer from clinical depression as well as a good friend of mine. It really hinders my ability to enjoy life as is and I have a piss-poor self-esteem, it's just awful to live with. My personality has also alerted slightly due to having it.

Thanks for this. I have clinical depression, anxiety, and OCD. There needs to be more awareness. Plus, this is a very well done stamp. :)

Thank you for this stamp.

My mom simply brushes off my unipolar disorder like it's "hormones" or something even though my school counseollor says otherwise.

I hate how people call depression some kind of fad, depression's been around since the beginning of life. More than just humans feel emotions so depression isn't something we just made up. People shun what they do not understand.
