Do you know someone who needs counseling or therapy for depression? What are the signs and symptoms of depression?
There are several types of depression, and the signs and symptoms are different for each type. Depression is also a coping mechanism — due to stress, difficult or traumatic life circumstances, and some personality traits may contribute to depression. One way of coping is to “retreat” into a depressed state with feelings of helplessness and hopelessness. The following types of depression, signs and symptoms are descriptive and not necessarily formal diagnostic categories.
The signs and symptoms of depression are similar in each of these types of depression. They tend to be less severe in situational or chronic depression, and result in more disability in Major and Bipolar Depression.
There is good news about depression — people can and do get better.
