Word! Depression

Depression

(En español: Depresión)

Say: dih-preh-shun

It's normal to feel sad sometimes, but if you feel that way for a long time, and you never feel happy, it's called depression. Sometimes, it's hard to figure out what's causing a person's depression. One thing's for sure, though: if you feel depressed or if you think someone else is depressed, talk to a trusted grown-up about it.
