These include: avoiding talking to or spending time with your friends taking part in fewer social activities neglecting interests and hobbies doing poorly at work difficulties with your family or home life It's not always possible to tell that you're having symptoms of depression right away – it can start and progress gradually. A lot of people don't realise they're ill and try to carry on and cope with their symptoms. Sometimes it takes a friend or family member to notice that there's a problem.
