A comprehensive explanation of the illness of depression is described by the National Institues of Mental Health (NIMH) in a brochure called Plain Talk About Depression.

There is a difference between just feeling blue, and the illness of depression.

The brochure explains:
  • What is a Depressive Disorder?
    Types of Depression
    Symptoms of Depression and Mania
    Causes of Depression
    Diagnostic Evaluation and Treatment
    Psychotherapies
    How to Help Yourself If You Are Depressed
    Where to Get Help[/list:u]
