Signs of Depression

What to look for:

  • Hopeless outlook: making comments such as, "The world would be a better place without me", or, "I just don't care about classes or my grades anymore". 
  • Loss of Interest: missing classes, not completing assignments, calling in sick to work, not hanging out with friends.
  • Feeling sad or empty.
  • Increased fatigue or lack of sleep.
  • More feelings of anxiety.
  • Uncontrollable feelings or irritability.
  • Changes in appetite: losing weight or gaining weight.
  • Talking about death, suicide or self-harm.
  • Lack of proper hygiene: not bathing, not brushing hair/teeth.

Not all crisis situations are suicide or harm related. Some are mental breaks, or it may be a person in a psychotic episode.
