Depression is something that is becoming more and more common across the world. Through a recent survey, taken across a pool of 10 countries, New Zealand ranked 2nd for people experiencing a major depressive episode in the 12 months before the survey, and 4th for people having suffered some depressive episode in their lifetime.

Depression is not easy, but it is also not something that you should let get the better of you. Depression is a real and treatable issue, and with the right help and counselling, it can really make an impact on how you deal with it on a daily basis.
