hi,
sad feeling, lack of interest in activities, decreased / increased sleep, ideas of hopelessness, worthlessness,
suicidal ideas, decreased appetite, decreased concentration , low energy levels

these symptoms should be present for at least 2 weeks to call it as depression.

However each individual can have different set of symptoms. Severity of symptoms varies. It can be mild, moderate, or severe.
