Depression or other mood disorders can present in many different ways: sadness, guilt, sleep disturbance, loss of pleasure, social withdrawal and fatigue to name a few.
These disorders are often much more than just the common symptoms most of us know to make up depression or mood disorders. Depression and mood disorders often impact every part of someones life.
