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 determine if you have depression” or “how do I tell if it is.” 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.
