Christmas is just around the corner, and for some, this is a wonderful time of the year but for many people, this is a time when depression overshadows everything else. According to the South African Depression and Anxiety Group (SADAG) December and January are the months when depression peaks, and when more South Africans attempt suicide than any other time of year. What is depression? Depression is a very real medical condition with many emotional, physical, behavioural symptoms. It’s not just a temporary change in mood or a sign of weakness; it is a real health problem. A lot of people are ashamed or afraid to ask for help and then suffer in silence. Sharon Osbourne has been battling depression for the last 16 years. When she was asked recently, ‘Why didn’t you talk about it before?’ her reply was: ‘No one asked’. For those who don’t suffer from depression, now is the time to reach out to those who do. Turn to pages 14 and 15 to read about Sharon and other celebrities who have suffered from depression. We also give you some tips on how to beat the holiday blues and most importantly some handy helpline numbers.

You don’t have to suffer alone.

Big kid James McAvoy

Big kid James McAvoy
James McAvoy
James McAvoy thinks it's amazing how people show different "versions" of themselves depending on who they are with.

James McAcvoy reverts to being a child when he's around his grandparents.

The 35-year-old was raised by his elderly relatives after his mum and dad divorced and his mother suffered poor health.

He might now be a father to his four-year-old son Brendan with wife Anne-Marie Duff, but sometimes he can't hold back his inner kid.

"I have many sides!" he laughed to the German edition of Cosmopolitan. "Sometimes I'm just daddy and then other times I'm just a teenager. I grew up with my grandparents. Whenever I visit them, I become a child again. Even now, at 35.

"My wife always says, 'You're doing it again! You're acting like a teenager!' That's when I realise and have to laugh at myself. It's amazing how, depending on who you're with, you show a completely different version of yourself."

Luckily, the actor normally manages to keep himself in check and has previously gushed about how much more careful and responsible Brendan has made him. And, further proving his credentials as a family man, James is a dab hand in the kitchen.

"Yes, I love cooking," he smiled. "Before I started studying acting, I even worked in a bakery. Whenever I'm in New York, I'll head straight to my favourite cafe, Babycakes, in the Lowe Eastside, and get a doughnut.

"Baking isn't my thing though - my wife does it. But I do cook. Preferably a stew." © Cover Media
