Are depression and sadness the same?


No. The duration of sadness is less than that of a depressive episode, which may persist for weeks, months, or even years. While depression does not go away on its own, feelings of sadness often do. People who are depressed frequently experience other emotions as well, such as worry, emptiness, and hopelessness. #depression #sadness #depressionawareness #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmatters
