Clinical depression is really a phrase thrown around in the mental healthfield in a general way, to reference other diagnosable conditions. It isnot officially a diagnosis. The types of depression you may bediagnosed with include:

  1. Dysthymia
  2. Major Depression
  3. Bipolar Disorder

Below is a list of the symptoms often experienced in these types of depression:

  • Depressed mood, feelings of sadness or emptiness
  • Radical reduction in interest in or pleasure in nearly all daily activities
  • Significant weight loss or weight gain of 5% in the last 30 days
  • Inability to sleep or oversleeping
  • A physical or mental sense of feeling slowed down
  • Fatigue or loss of energy everyday
  • Feelings of worthlessness or excessive guilt nearly every day
  • Diminished ability to concentrate
  • Indecisiveness
  • Frequent thoughts of death or suicide
  • Impairment in functioning socially, in occupation, family etc.
