Dealing with Depression

Updated: Mar 4, 2020

Depression is depressing.

"About 11% of men and 16% of women in Canada will experience major depression in the course of their lives. Depression can limit your quality of life, affect relationships, lead to lost time from work or school, and contribute to other chronic illnesses (or diseases), such as diabetes and heart diseases. Sometimes it leads to suicide. Major depression is a clinical term used to define a time period that lasts more than two months in which a person feels worthless and hopeless."¹
