Types of Depression

Symptoms of depression are complex and vary widely between people, although there are some common signs and symptoms

Everyone feels sad and blue occasionally, but this usually passes within a few days. Unfortunately, many people mistakenly associate those ‘blue-days’ as being the same as depression. However, they are very different.

When someone has depression, it interferes with every aspect of life. The severity of the symptoms not only has an impact on them, but also those closest, usually family and friends.

There are many people suffering depression who never seek treatment. However, there are many people and organisations out there to help and support people through depression.

The different types of depression have unique causes, symptoms, and treatments. Knowing and understanding exactly what type of depression, can help someone seek the most appropriate treatment and support. Education is also a great source of helping someone to manage depressive symptoms
