Common Types of Depression
Often referred to as clinical depression, this type is characterized by an overwhelming sense of despair and a profound loss of interest or pleasure in daily activities. It may manifest with physical symptoms such as changes in appetite, sleep disturbances, low energy, or even thoughts of death.
Persistent Depressive Disorder
Formerly known as dysthymia, this type involves a prolonged low mood lasting for at least two years. While less intense than major depression, it can still result in daily life challenges, such as joylessness, appetite and sleep changes, low energy, low self-esteem, and feelings of hopelessness.
Previously referred to as manic-depressive illness, this type encompasses periods of depression as well as episodes of heightened energy and activity. Manic symptoms include grandiose ideas, increased self-esteem, decreased need for sleep, rapid thoughts and actions, and impulsive behaviors. These manic periods are often followed by depressive episodes.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
PTSD-related depression occurs when individuals experience difficulty processing and healing from traumatic events. Common symptoms include re-experiencing the trauma, avoidance behaviors, and feelings of fear and anxiety. In situations where trauma is recalled, individuals may react with aggression or depression, leading to substantial life challenges.
Postpartum Depression (Peripartum Depression)
Postpartum depression, specific to women, emerges after childbirth and is often referred to as the “baby blues.” While common and typically lasting only a few weeks, some women experience more severe and prolonged symptoms that can impact their emotional state for years. It’s essential to seek support and treatment for this type of depression.
