      It can be hard to tell because every person will experience depression in their own way. Generally though, a lot of people with depression will be quieter, more reserved, and show up less to things that are important to them such as class, will avoid seeing friends and going to sports or hobbies etc. Depression can be exhausting so people tend to “hibernate” from responsibilities. However other people with depression will act out when they’re stressed or might cry easily or will have trouble concentrating on what they need to do.
