What is *clinical depression?
Clinical depression is a common mental health problem that involves several symptoms, including: feeling depressed, sleep problems, lack of interest in activities that normally bring us pleasure, feelings of guilt or worthlessness, low energy and concentration. Sometimes suicidal thoughts accompany depression.
