• loss of interest in activities that used to be enjoyed;

• rapid weight changes;

• trouble sleeping/sleeping more than usual;

• loss of energy;

• feeling worthless/guilty;

• is a serious and very real medical condition;

• can affect all people from all walks of life; 

• can be carried over from one generation to the next;

• is treatable!
