Depression

Depression is a psychiatric disorder that affects mood, behavior, and overall wellbeing. People with depression may also experience changes in appetite, changes in sleeping habits, loss of energy, and difficulty concentrating. Though depression is primarily a psychological disorder, it can also have physical signs such as headaches, other unexplained aches and pains, unusually slow or fast movements, or digestive difficulties. For at least two weeks, an individual must have signs and symptoms almost every day for at least two weeks. People with depression have a higher risk of heroin misuse problems and suicide by suicide than the general population. Several health disorders are closely related to depression or have depression as a typical feature. People with schizoaffective disorder, anxiety, or another mood disorder are often associated with features of schizophrenia.
