Understanding Mental Illnesses Series – Going Beyond the Surface

Part 2: What is Depression?

3 March 2021 

In this 2nd part of the mental illness series, let us take you through some basic knowledge on "What is Depression?" and how it differs from just being sad.

The word 'depressed' has been so overused in our daily lexicon that the disorder itself is very much misunderstood. Join us to take a step into learning more about what clinical depression is all about.

After the lecture, participants would be able to:

•Understand what clinical depression is

•Recognise the different types of depression

•Identify the signs and symptoms of Major Depressive Disorder

•Know what some of the common treatment options are

•Learn how to support and what are the resources available
