Find Help with Depression

depression.jpgEveryone experiences days when they feel low or miserable, but usually these feelings quickly pass. However, if you’re feeling persistently sad and these feelings are interfering with your day-to-day life then it could be a sign that you are suffering from depression. The Community Programme can provide contact details for the services and support available and enable you to find the information to gain a better understanding of depression, its symptoms and the treatment available.


Symptoms of depression include low mood, feelings of hopelessness, low self-esteem, lack of energy and problems with sleep. At its most severe, clinical depression can lead to suicidal thoughts or cause individuals to give up the will to live. There are also some specific forms of depression, which include postnatal depression, seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and bipolar disorder, otherwise known as manic depression.


If you are depressed, you may feel that nothing can help, but this is not true, The Community Programme can put you in touch with support groups in your area, where you can speak with others similarly affected and those who have beaten depression and have learned from the experience. Similarly, you can discuss your feelings and concerns on our free, confidential online forum.


If you need practical help and support or specialist advice with this issue, please act now and contact one of the organisations listed by The Community Programme.
