While everyone can feel sad or down from time to time, clinical depression is a serious diagnosis best managed with therapy, holistic practices, and possible medications. Symptoms of depression can range from persistent feelings of sadness and loss of interest in daily activities to complete social withdrawal or even suicidal ideation.
