Depression is a mood disorder characterized by a persistent feeling of sadness, lack of interest in activities, and fatigue. Most people will feel sad or depressed at times, but when these feelings last for weeks and interfere with normal daily activities, it may be a more serious condition requiring treatment. Depression is pervasive in the United States; as many as 21% of women and 12% of men will experience a depressive episode at some point in their life (Depression, 2014).
