    About 25% of young women suffer depression by the time they are 25 to 28, but very few seek help. This is often due to not understanding depression and being worried about what their friends might think. We all feel sad and depressed from time to time. This is normal. In a normal day people can go through a range of emotions. However, having feelings sad and depressive thoughts for a long time is different.

    If you feel so depressed that you want to harm yourself, it's important to talk to a psychologist or someone you trust, or speak to a health care professional. (Contact your doctor, local hospital or 24 hour emergency number).
