Depression: What People Don't See (Infographic)

Posted on October 3, 2016

Below the surface, living with depression can mean days spent in bed, missed appointments, and alternate days when we seem "fine." There's so much more to depression than meets the eye. We know that depression comes with hundreds of possible combinations of symptoms, many of which appear invisible to outsiders. Most people don't see the many symptoms we experience.


On MyDepressionTeam.com, the social network and online support group for people living with depression, members discuss the chronic nature of depression and its hidden symptoms. MyDepressionTeam has grown to reach 84,600+ members and members have shared thousands of conversations about life with depression Throughout the year we will share themes we see come up time and time again on MyDepressionTeam. We chose the image of an iceberg to represent depression symptoms because the life-impacting implications of a depression diagnosis aren't obvious on the surface. Please share to spread depression awareness!



This list is by no means exhaustive. What symptoms would you add?
