Signs of Depression (other than low mood)

💔. Not sure if this is appropriate to list. Sometimes it's not always obvious what someone is going through until it's too late.
  1. Sleep
    Difficulty falling asleep or early morning waking: In some cases sleeping in is a sign.
  2. Loss of interest
    In hobbies, socializing, intercourse, etc
  3. Guilt
    And low self esteem
  4. Low energy
    Life itself is exhausting when you're depressed
  5. Poor concentration
  6. Appetite
    Reduced usually but if there's an associated overeating disorder it's the opposite
  7. Slowing down
    Everything takes longer to do
  8. Suicidal ideation
    Whether passive (I wouldn't mind if I died) or active thoughts of self harm
  9. Risk factors for suicide (often not applicable)
    Male, age <19 or >45, history of depression, previous attempts, alcohol abuse, rational thinking loss, separated/divorce/widowed, organised plan, lack of social support, mentioned a future attempt previously (take this seriously. Always)
