What are the types of depression?

There are several types of depression. Though they cause similar symptoms, they may have different triggers. Types of depression include:

Clinical depression

Clinical depression, also called major depression, is the most common type and causes severe feelings of sadness and despair that affects how you think and act. 

Persistent depressive disorder (PDD)

PDD is a chronic form of depression that causes a low mood and energy level that lasts two or more years. People with PDD can go to work and school, but may find little joy in activities or life. 

Perinatal depression

Perinatal depression is a type of depression that occurs during pregnancy or after childbirth. Hormonal changes trigger this type of depression.
