Depression is affecting more and more people in Sheffield each year.

One in four of the population will have direct experience of depression at some point in their life. How are these people meant to manage or control their depression?

If you want to do a quick check as to whether you might be depressed you can take the NHS Depression Test here.

The current approach many GP’s take with depression is to prescribe medication and/or CBT. There are a number of problems with this approach:

  • Potential Side Effects Of Medication

  • Medication Rarely Deals With The Root Cause Of The Issue

  • Waiting Lists For CBT Can Be Up To 12 Months Long

Take the depression test

What is the difference between a low mood and depression? Is this just a blip or something more serious? While this site can not diagnose if you are depressed or not the NHS online test over there could help you get a better idea of what might be going on. If you suspect that you might be depressed please do contact your GP.
