8 Signs You’re Depressed About Your Life

8 Signs You’re Depressed About Your Life

The signs of depression can often go unnoticed. Depression symptoms could get worse and become severe depression or major depression if you don’t do anything about it. So, how do you know you’re depressed? Are you wondering if your mental health has been getting worse?

May is Mental Health Awareness month. And as May is coming to an end, we want to release this video to continue raise awareness that we should take care of our mental health. If you feel that your mental health has been declining as of late, we recommend you start seeking professional help or make the necessary changes to your habits.

We made a video on the signs you’re actually depressed, not lazy: https://youtu.be/q8HRGiUeZwc
