      Angus, here is a pin that shows what a depressed brain might look like and what someones brain might look like if they aren't depressed. This is a good visual to better understand what a person might be feeling if they are struggling with depression based on what the brain looks like. Take a moment to notice the differences. This is a good pin to show and spread awareness of what depression can do to the brain.


      Depression: What Is It? It's natural to feel down sometimes, but if that low mood lingers day after day, it could signal depression. Major depression is an episode of sadness or apathy along with other symptoms that lasts at least two consecutive weeks and is severe enough to interrupt daily activities. Depression is not a sign of weakness or a negative personality. It is a major public health problem and a treatable medical condition. Shown here is a PET scan revealing "hot spots" of increased activity in the brain of a non-depressed person

The temporal lobes (at the top of the graphic), which regulate emotions and receive input from the senses, are nearly quiescent. Such children suffer emotional and cognitive problems.

    What is depression?

    Depression quote: Depression is a prison where you are both the suffering prisoner and the cruel jailer.

    Normal versus Depressed brain activity which is in green/yellow. Depression isn’t just something you can “snap out of.” I think people find depression as some sort of personal weakness, and that people with depression just have to be more grateful or positive. They might get a lot of “your life isn’t that bad, it could be worse” speeches, but that’s not just what depression is about, and it definitely isn’t that easy to get over
