Male Health and Wellness Awareness Poster- Major Depression Depression, also known as major depression, is a severe constant mood state of being depressed and with the feeling of hopelessness over a long period of time. Other names for major depression include chronic depression and clinical depression. Things seem wrong, you hate your life, being happy seems distant, you’ve developed a hatred for the people around you and the thoughts of suicide keep popping into your head. Does this describe you? If it does, you may be suffering from clinical depression, a condition and not a sign of weakness.
