Psychiatric syndromes, also referred to as mental health disorders or mental illnesses, are a wide range of conditions that affect a person's thoughts, emotions, behavior, and overall mental well-being. These syndromes are typically diagnosed based on specific sets of symptoms and criteria outlined in diagnostic manuals like the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) or the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-10 and ICD-11).



Clinical depression, also known as major depressive disorder (MDD), is a serious and common mental health condition characterized by persistent and intense feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and a lack of interest or pleasure in activities. It goes beyond the usual feelings of sadness or occasional "down" periods that everyone experiences in life. Clinical depression can significantly affect a person's daily life, including their ability to work, study, eat, sleep, and enjoy life.


Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a mental health condition characterized by the presence of obsessions and compulsions. It's a chronic condition that affects a person's thoughts and behavior, often leading to distress and impairment in daily life.



"Behavioral depressions" is not a recognized or standard term in the field of psychology or psychiatry. It's possible that you may be referring to a particular aspect of depression or specific behaviors associated with depression. However, depression itself is primarily characterized by emotional and cognitive symptoms, not just behavioral ones.



Bipolar depression, also known as bipolar depressive disorder or bipolar II disorder, is a subtype of bipolar disorder. Bipolar disorder is characterized by extreme mood swings, including periods of intense euphoria (mania or hypomania) and episodes of severe depression. Bipolar depression specifically refers to the depressive episodes that individuals with bipolar disorder experience



Stress management is a set of techniques and strategies designed to help individuals effectively cope with and reduce the negative effects of stress in their lives. Stress is a natural response to challenging situations, but chronic or excessive stress can have detrimental effects on both physical and mental health.



The neurobiology of depression is a complex and ongoing area of research. Depression is thought to involve alterations in brain structure, function, and neurotransmitter activity



Psychotic depression, also known as major depressive disorder with psychotic features, is a subtype of clinical depression characterized by the presence of psychotic symptoms alongside the typical symptoms of major depression. These psychotic symptoms can include hallucinations (false sensory perceptions) and delusions (false beliefs).



"Subsyndromal depression" is a term used to describe a condition in which an individual experiences some symptoms of depression but does not meet the full criteria for a major depressive disorder (MDD). This condition is sometimes referred to as "subthreshold depression" or "minor depression." It's a significant clinical concern because it can still cause distress and impair functioning, even if it doesn't meet the full criteria for a diagnosis of MDD.



Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder (DMDD) is a relatively new mental health diagnosis introduced in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5). It is primarily diagnosed in children and adolescents who experience severe temper outbursts and mood instability that is disproportionate to their age and developmental level.



Geriatric depression, also known as late-life depression or geriatric major depressive disorder, refers to the occurrence of depression in older adults, typically aged 65 and older. Depression in older adults presents unique challenges due to factors such as physical health issues, loss of loved ones, and changes in social and economic circumstances.


"Resistant depression," also known as treatment-resistant depression (TRD), refers to a type of depression that does not respond adequately to standard treatments for depression. Standard treatments often include psychotherapy (such as cognitive-behavioral therapy) and various antidepressant medications. When depression persists despite these treatments, it is considered treatment-resistant.


Suicide prevention is a critical public health initiative aimed at reducing the risk of suicide and providing support to individuals who may be at risk. Suicide is a serious and preventable tragedy, and various strategies and resources are available to help prevent it.



Mental health rehabilitation is a holistic and recovery-oriented approach to helping individuals with mental health conditions regain their functional, social, and emotional well-being. It focuses on improving the quality of life, enhancing independence, and promoting recovery in individuals who may have experienced severe mental health challenges

Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), commonly referred to as clinical depression, is a mental health condition characterized by persistent and severe feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and a lack of interest or pleasure in activities. It is one of the most prevalent mental health disorders and can significantly impact a person's daily life.


Persistent Depressive Disorder (PDD), also known as Dysthymia, is a chronic form of depression characterized by a persistent and long-lasting low mood and a lack of interest or pleasure in daily activities. Unlike Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), which is characterized by more severe but episodic symptoms, PDD involves a milder but enduring form of depression

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), sometimes referred to as seasonal depression, is a subtype of depression characterized by recurrent episodes of depressive symptoms that occur at specific times of the year, typically during the fall and winter months when there is less natural sunlight. SAD is believed to be related to changes in daylight and can be a challenging condition for those affected.


Postpartum Depression (PPD) is a form of clinical depression that affects some individuals after childbirth. It can occur within weeks or months of giving birth and is characterized by a range of emotional, physical, and behavioral symptoms. PPD is a serious and treatable condition, and understanding its key aspects is essential for early recognition and support.


Situational or Reactive Depression, also known as Adjustment Disorder with Depressed Mood, is a type of mood disorder characterized by a temporary and typically time-limited period of emotional distress, sadness, and other depressive symptoms that occur in response to a specific life stressor or difficult life event. This form of depression is considered a normal response to challenging circumstances and is distinguishable from major depressive disorder (MDD) or other clinical forms of depression.


Atypical depression is a subtype of major depressive disorder (MDD), characterized by a specific set of symptoms that distinguish it from typical depression. It's important to note that "atypical" in this context refers to the symptoms being different from what is considered typical in traditional depression, rather than implying that it is uncommon.
