AS@W Antidepressant Skills Workbook: Heling You Deal With Depression
What is depression?
The two most common types of depression are called mild depression and major depression.

Each of these includes the same kinds of problems (the ones we’ve listed above) but major depression is more severe. Usually, when a person gets depressed, it’s the mild kind. Your family physician, a psychiatrist or a psychologist can tell you whether you have a depression.
