Depression is a mental health condition that may occur at any point during the course of people's lives. It is completely normal and natural to feel its affects after difficult experiences such as death and divorce. It may also occur from a natural imbalance in the brain's chemistry after events like the birth of a new baby. However, when depression becomes an all-consuming and debilitating weight, it can be destructive to your physical and emotional health.
