Clinical Depression

Please take note that Clinical Depression is absolutely not the same thing as the far more common and (usually) somewhat temporary Situational Depression which most people have very likely experienced more than a few times during their lifetime.

The WebMD website has a very informative little depression overview slideshow on the topic of depression which should quickly clear up any misconceptions you might have had about it. It's well worth having a look at, even if you think you already understand what depression is. After you've got a good grasp on the differences, the following list of links may be a good jumping off point for further exploration of the topic, should it interest you.
