Depression is very common. Many people suffer from depression. Typically, someone who has depression will report sadness, pessimism, feelings of worthlessness, low energy and a lack of pleasure in daily life. There are several different types of depression: major depression, dysthymia (chronic low-grade depression), and adjustment disorders. Depression may develop in response to significant life events, such as the death of a family member or friend, financial or work difficulties. Chronic illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, or kidney disease may also lead to depression.
