Varieties of Depression

Many diagnosable conditions are forms of depression. Postpartum depression affects new mothers; bipolar disorder (colloquially known as manic depression), involves episodes of sadness and anxiety mixed with manic "highs."

Seasonal depression affects people only in the winter months, while dysthymia is mild depression. Suicidal thoughts often coincide with depressive episodes, which is why it's important to be aware of the signs if you or a loved one experiences chronic mood disturbances.
