Almost everyone feels sad or "depressed" at certain times. Clinical depression
(also called Major Depressive Disorder) is confirmed by the presence of a number
of symptoms for at least a two week period. These symptoms include sadness,
loss of interest in usual activities, changes in appetite, changes in sleep, changes
in sexual desire, difficulties in concentration, a decrease in activities or social
withdrawal, increased self criticism or reproach, and thoughts of, or actual plans
related to suicide.
