Is this clinical or situation depression?Watch this thread
Hmm I don't think its ever one or the other. Though from my understanding, situational depression is more about situations at present such as loss of family member, relationship breakdown, financial issues etc. as opposed to trauma experienced years ago.
And I stand by what I said that no depression is ever 'purely' clinical or reactive, it's more of a gene-environment interaction of the two (with most research pointing towards psychological models of depression as opposed to biological heavy ones)
