What do you know about depression? Although depression has been reported by the World Health Organisation as the leading cause of disability and the most common mental illness in the world, with over 264 million people around the globe suffering from it, the truth is, there’s still a lot that most people don’t know or understand about the signs of depression.

Are you wondering if you might be depressed?
