We’ve all had those days when we feel sad and like the world’s weight is on our shoulders. But when those feelings don’t go away or worsen, it’s time to seek help.

Depression is the “common flu” of mental health. It is a mood disorder characterized by persistently low mood and a feeling of sadness and loss of interest. It can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems. It can decrease a person’s ability to function in their daily life. How do we differentiate one having depression from one being sad? Is depression genetic? What exactly is depression, then?

There is more hope for recovery than ever before—but only if we know what our loved ones or we are dealing with and what kind of support is available. So join us to learn about depression and its types, the risk factors, and much more!

This seminar is suited for the general public without knowledge of psychology or mental health. We welcome any professionals or students in this field to come forward and share their knowledge.

In this seminar, participants will learn about:

  • What is Depression
  • The difference between Depression and Sadness
