Hello Lybrate user Depression is a mood disorder in which one experiences low mood, disturbed sleep, low appetite and loss of interest in all the activities. However it can be treated with combination therapy i.e. Medecines along with regular counselling sessions. Try consulting a clinical psychologist for proper diagnosis and treatment. Try talking to her and allow her to share her thoughts and feelings. You can also reach out to me through the Lybrate app.
