What is depression
What Is Depression?

Depression is like living with a cloud following you wherever you go. Some days it can be light and people can go through their entire day without it affecting them but depression can quickly become a dark cloud and it will feel like the world is a dark, hopeless place. Depression also doesn’t need to have a reason, sometimes it just gets “switched on”. When depression kicks into action, people can’t find good in anything and it feels like you will never be happy again. Interesting Fact: Dementors from Harry Potter were meant to cause depression.
