Depression is a common mental disorder characterized by loss of interest or pleasure, feelings of guilt or low-self worth, disturbed sleep or appetite, low energy, poor concentration, insomnia or hypersomnia, and occasionally suicidal thoughts. These problems can lead to substantial impairments in an individual's daily functioning. At its worst, depression can lead to suicide. In Vermont, suicide consistently ranks as one of the top 10 leading causes of death.
