Lack of motivation, low mood, and feelings of hopelessness may be what you are going through. It is not just a phase and no, you can’t just ‘get over it’.

Depression can leave you feeling isolated from others, overly tired, and overwhelmingly sad. Sometimes there are triggers or life events that cause depression. Other times there is no event that can be pinpointed.

Therapy can help you learn coping strategies, create new ways of thinking and behaving, heal pain from the past, and move towards future goals.

Reaching out for help may feel impossible but the fact that you are here means that a part of you wants to feel better and start living your life again. Hold on to that part that wants to feel good again and take the next step to gaining your life back.
