Depression is not just feeling unhappy. It is characterized by persistent feelings of sadness or irritability and loss of interest in almost all activities. Clinical depression can have a profound effect on all aspects of daily living, but most people make a full recovery. Depression is treatable.
Grief is a natural process experienced by all people, to one degree or another, after the occurrence of a loss. Significant losses, such as the death of someone close to you, the breakup of a close relationship/friendship, or the loss of hopes and dreams, are some of life’s most stressful occurrences.
