Depression is a disorder that negatively effects the health of the person. Depression can affect people from doing everyday activities. (NIH, n.d.) Serious medical conditions can cause depression to increase. (NIH, n.d.) People with depression must seek care at once as the conditions tend to get worse. Recovery from depression is a lengthy process so starting right away is key for a happier life. Depression leads to increased risk of suicide. Anti-depressants are used to suppress and treat depression. However, these pills take time. (NIH, n.d.) Symptoms include trouble concentrating, outbursts, sadness, and loss of interest. (Staff, 2018) People have trouble concentrating because they are overwhelmed by different emotions, they are feeling. Outbursts are common as people with depression can get easily agitated. Sadness is another symptom that heavily effects the health of a person. Sadness can be caused by lack of dopamine in the brain. Loss of interest is a telling sign that you may have depression.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
