Depression Doesn’t Take A Summer Vacation

Many of us associate depression with cold and bleak winters, but it does not have to be snowy and gray for people to experience depression. It is happening to people you know right now during warm and sunny July. Here are some symptoms of depression:

  • Feeling sad or “empty”
  • Feeling hopeless, irritable, anxious or guilty
  • Loss of interest in favorite activities
  • Lack of concentration or forgetting details
  • Not being able to sleep or sleeping too much
  • Overeating or not wanting to eat at all
  • Suffering from fatigue, headaches, body aches/pains or digestive problems
  • Thoughts of suicide


If you, or a loved one, are experiencing any of these symptoms, take our free and confidential mental health screening. If you would like to talk to someone, MIT MyLife Services counselors are available 24/7 at 844-405-5433.
