Depression is a serious problem for men and women, young and old alike. It is a general term used to describe a range of feelings and emotions: a sense of unease, unhappiness, apathy, exhaustion or malaise, and in various combinations and varying degrees. Depression, once diagnosed as such, is also a clinical term referring to a mood disorder, especially those classified as "clinical depression", which may include bipolar aspects and / or other mood disturbances. Information resources contained on this page are meant to help patients and families explore various forms of depression as well as its current treatments.
