Signs of Severe Depression in Young Adults and College Students
  • Feeling depressed or emotionally down on most days.
    • This is more than a feeling of being down.  For example, a depressed college student may have trouble going to class because they feel too depressed to get out of bed.
  • Difficulty concentrating.
    • College students who are severely depressed often have trouble focusing on tasks such as school or homework.
  • Loss of interest in all activities.
    • College students or young adults who are depressed often lose interest in things that they typically enjoy.  When a person is depressed, even food may lose its taste or appeal.  Alternatively, some people binge eat to “numb” the emotional pain of depression.
  • Withdrawing from family or friends.
    • College students or young adults with severe depression often quit reaching out to family or friends.
  • Crying spells for no apparent reason.
    • Many people with depression feel “weepy” and want to cry for no apparent reason.
  • Feelings of irrational guilt.
    • It is not unusual for individuals with depression to feel guilty about things from their past.  They may ruminate about past mistakes or feel irrationally guilty about past events.
  • Thoughts of suicide or wanting to die.
    • Thoughts of suicide are a sign of depression.  The more severe the depression, the more severe the thoughts of dying tends to be.
  • Feeling agitated or irritable most days.  
    • College students with severe depression may feel internally angry or agitated without knowing exactly why.
  • Feeling hopeless.
    • The greater the depression, the more intense the feelings of hopelessness tend to be.
  • Feeling worthless.
    • College students with depression often feel worthless.  Instead of feeling hopeful about the future, they tend to feel that they will never overcome their depression or become a person that they or others will value.
If you or someone you know is struggling with severe depression.  Get help.  You don’t have to suffer in silence.  Mental health treatment can help you get back to living the life that you want.
