We all feel sad from time to time. But as we get older, changes in our lives, such as bereavement, illness or retirement, can make us more vulnerable to low moods or depression. This may mean we need a bit of extra support.
If you're struggling to cope, help is available. Treatments – such as medication or talking therapies - can be very effective, even if you’ve been feeling low for a long time, and there are lots of different options available.
