Depression is a common but serious medical illness. Fortunately, it is also treatable. Depression can cause feelings of sadness and/or a loss of interest in activities that were once enjoyable. If the persistent feeling of sadness continues for more than 3 months it needs to be treated as it can interfere with daily life activities.
