Are you self-medicating with alcohol and/or drugs? Do you feel that nobody and nothing could ever make a difference, and it is the end of the world? Do not despair you are not alone in experiencing these feelings.

Depression is the UK’s most common form of mental illness and, unlike many physical illnesses that have precise features, symptoms of depression can be unique to everyone.
