Everyone feels sad or “blue” from time to time for a few days or weeks. Depression is when these feelings don't go away and they interfere with daily life. Depression is a real illness.

“I was 5 years old when I began to tell myself that it was my fault that my mom wasn't around anymore. I thought perhaps I had done something wrong, maybe if I was better she would want me. Maybe if I did better at school, or listened better, or learned more, maybe she would come see me...” (pg 5 My name is depression)
Woolf suffered from severe bouts of mental illness throughout her life, thought to have been what is now termed bipolar disorder, and committed suicide by drowning in 1941 at the age of 59.

Antipsychotic medicines are primarily used to manage psychosis. The word “psychosis” is used to describe conditions that affect the mind, and in which there has been some loss of contact with reality, often including delusions (false, fixed beliefs) or hallucinations (hearing or seeing things that are not really there). It can be a symptom of a physical condition such as drug abuse or a mental disorder such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or very severe depression (also known as “psychotic depression”).
