Friendly reminder again that if you’ve found yourself here by late night or frantically googling questions like “Am I depressed enough for therapy?” You can contact a therapist to get a consultation on “How to tell if your depression is” or “How to know if you have it.” There are many nuances between sadness and depression, as well as changes in moods. Don’t be afraid of asking a therapist for help if you can.
