Depression isn't a one-size-fits-all condition...

It can take many forms.  For some, depression is an immediate and debilitating problem that makes everyday tasks seem impossible.  For others, depression may be a persistent low mood over a long period of time. Sometimes depression is hidden and it looks more like anger or irritability.

Regardless of what it looks like, depression can be a dark and painful journey but, it's not a journey you need to make alone.
