Types of Depression
There are different types of depression. Martin Lopez, Psychotherapist at Baptist Health Care and Counseling, says one of them is persistent depressive disorder, which means a person has depression for more than two years.
Teresita Calero, Psychotherapist at Baptist Health Care and Counseling, explains another type: postpartum depression. "As a woman gives birth there are many hormonal changes that occur in the body and giving that birth could cause depression," she says.
Psychotic depression, seasonal affective disorder and bipolar disorder are some other types of depression that are common nowadays.
