Depression is an all-consuming nightmare, no matter your age. How it manifests, however, could depend on your life stage.
Signs of this mental health condition, which affects an estimated 350 million people of all ages worldwide, can appear differently when you’re young compared to when you’re older. And according to Michelle Riba, a professor of psychiatry and the associate director of the University of Michigan Depression Center, some of them may not be so obvious.
“Depression is incredibly complex,” Riba told The Huffington Post. “People may not understand a lot of the symptoms. But it’s important to identify and seek professional help for these issues.”
