Feeling Sad

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This six-page handout educates people about sadness and depression. It explains that it is normal for people to feel sad or unhappy when something goes wrong, but when these feelings are severe or affect daily activities for more than two weeks, they should see their doctor in case it is depression, which is a serious health condition. It lists signs and symptoms that may indicate depression, and discusses treatment and care, such as talking with a doctor, medication, counseling, and asking family and friends for help. The document recommends things people can do to feel better, and provides guidelines for what people should do if they experience thoughts of harming themselves or others.
