Depression is a mood disorder marked by extended sadness and a loss of interest. Also referred to as major depression or clinical depression, it affects your feelings, thoughts and behaviors.
Are you concerned that someone in your life might be depressed? Hidden depression is often undiagnosed depression, that may make a person seem functionally fine, but in fact, deep down, manifest depression.
