If someone went through childhood trauma at an early age and starts showing depressive symptoms as an adult, is it considered situational since it was caused by childhood trauma?

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.

I think perhaps seeing your gp would be a good idea, they can assess that for themselves and provide treatment which they think is appropriate.

There are only two types of depression though: clinical and situational so it has to be one or the other.

Often it's hard to tell until you've tried treatment.

I mean yes and no. If you look at ICD-10 under depressive disorder is situational (reactive) depression, but it come under the umbrella term 'of major depressive disorder'

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)
