Depression affects millions of people worldwide. A blanket term for several specific disorders, "depression" often includes decreased pleasure or interest in usual activities, constant feelings of sadness, irritability, or tension, and occasional feelings of worthlessness, hopelessness, or guilt. Other common symptoms are a loss of energy or ambition, change in appetite with substantial weight loss or weight gain, and a disruption in typical sleeping patterns.
