Every year almost a million people commit suicide and depression is one of those mood disorders that lead people to make a bad decision. Acting in a timely manner is our responsibility. Do not let it affect your well-being and your relationship.
Suicide is a complex problem, involving psychological, social, biological, cultural and environmental factors. And according to the WHO, available data compellingly demonstrates that proper prevention and treatment of depression and alcohol and substance abuse reduce suicide rates, as does follow-up contact with those who have attempted suicide.
That is why it is important that we all learn to identify when we are in the presence of depression , because many times we use this term lightly simply to express when we are sad.
Depression is a mood disorder in which feelings of sadness, loss, anger, or frustration interfere with your daily life for weeks or months, affecting your quality of life.
Those who live depressed see their feelings and thoughts altered , affecting various aspects of their life due to sadness, low spirits, loss of interest in everything and the feeling of being unable to face daily challenges.

The depression of one of the two members of the couple can lead to the loss of the ability to enjoy sex in privacy and restrict all sexual initiative.
And to complicate the situation, depression also has the ability to negatively impact a loved one's mental health and even trigger cognitive decline in couples over time, a study from the University's School of Public Health found. from Yale, in the United States.
