Depression is a common mental disorder, characterized by persistent sadness and a loss of interest in activities that are normally enjoyed, accompanied by an inability to carry out daily activities, for at least two weeks.
It is twice as prevalent in women as in men. It may occur at any age.
Types of depression:
Common types of depression include the following:
Major Depressive Disorder (MDD): MDD is one of the most common mental disorders in the United States. It is also referred to as clinical depression, is a significant medical condition, it impacts mood and behavior as well as various physical functions, such as appetite and sleep. People with MDD often lose interest in activities. Occasionally, they may also feel as life isn’t worth living.
Persistent Depressive Disorder: Dysthymia, now known as persistent depressive disorder, refers to a type of chronic depression present for at least two years. It can be mild, moderate or severe.
Bipolar Disorder: Is a mood disorder characterized by periods of abnormally elevated mood known as mania. These periods of a major can be mild (hypomania) or they can be so extreme as to cause marked impairment with a person’s life.
Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD): SAD is believed to be triggered by a disturbance in the normal circadian rhythm of the body. Light entering through the eyes influences this rhythm, and any seasonal variation in night/day pattern can cause a disruption leading to depression.
There are a number of factors that may increase the chance of depression, including the following:
Abuse. Past physical, sexual, or emotional abuse can increase the vulnerability to clinical depression later in life.
Conflict. Depression in someone who has the biological vulnerability to develop depression may result from personal conflicts or disputes with family members or friends.
Death or a loss. Sadness or grief from the death or loss of a loved one, though natural, may increase the risk of depression.
Serious illnesses. Sometimes depression co-exists with a major illness or may be triggered by another medical condition.
Genetics. A family history of depression may increase the risk. It’s thought that depression is a complex trait, meaning that there are probably many different genes that each exert small effects, rather than a single gene that contributes to disease risk.
Most common symptoms of depression can include:
- Feelings of helplessness.
- Loss of interest in daily activities.
- Appetite or weight changes.
- Sleep changes.
- Anger or irritability.
- Loss of energy.
- Reckless behavior.
