Major depressive disorder, also known as depression, is a mood disorder that can significantly impact an individual’s life if left untreated. Depression is characterized by a severe feeling of sadness, lack of motivation, and loss or surge in appetite. These feelings may cause a person to isolate themselves and become lonely, causing further social anxieties. Major depressive disorder can be caused by any combination of loss, trauma, hormones, and/or substance abuse, among other factors. Reaching out for professional help during an acute or long-term low period in life is important to help manage and maintain all other aspects of your life.
