What should I do if I think I am depressed?

The most important thing to do is speak to a doctor or mental health professional in order to get a correct diagnosis. Aware suggest that if you have 5 or more FESTIVAL symptoms (see above) for 2 weeks or more, it is important to see your doctor. There are a number of treatments for depression, depending on the cause and severity of symptoms and a professional is best placed to decide, with you, which, if any, treatment is most appropriate.

Accessing reliable information is also vital. As well as online information booklets and online talks Aware offers free information packs – call our office or email to request one.
