Everyone feels down at times. The blues are a natural part of life.
However, an unhappy period that is intense or lasts for more than a couple of weeks can be a sign of depression. Depression is a serious illness. It is not a sign of weakness or a "character flaw," and it is not something you can "snap out of." In fact, most people with depression need treatment to get better. Depression can disrupt the lives of family and friends. If you know someone you think may be depressed, find out what you can do to help.
