When you are depressed, you feel sad, hopeless, and empty. The feelings are so intense that they seem to last forever.

Depressionhas many causes, but it usually starts after something bad happens to you or someone you love. For example, if you lose a job or a loved one, you may feel sad or even suicidal. If someone you care about is sick or dying, you may feel angry or guilty. If your life seems unfulfilling or you don’t have close friends or family members who care about you, you may feel lonely and isolated.
