Is Sadness and Depression the same?

To the layperson, the two may appear on the surface to be the same. However, to the trained clinician they are not. One may see sadness as a response to an adverse outcome, but clinical depression is much more. Signs of Depression include: sleep disturbances, guilt, loss of interest in all activities, poor appetite and even suicidal ideation. If you have been experiencing any of these symptoms >2 weeks, please reach out for help.
