Types of depression
There are a number of different types of depression, including mild/severe depression, that we are able to treat at Priory, and it is important to understand that each type can result in different depression symptoms and impact on individuals in unique ways. Our Priory experts have extensive experience in the treatment of a number of different types of depression. The most common types of depression are:
- Severe depression
- Severe depression with psychotic symptoms
- Moderately severe depression/mild depression
- Bipolar affective disorder
- Recurrent depressive disorder
You can find out more about each of these conditions below, simply by clicking on the name of each type of depression.
This page was clinically reviewed by Dr Leon Rozewicz (MBBS, FRCPsych, MRCGP, MRCPsych) in June 2020, and is scheduled to be reviewed again in June 2022. To view all Priory depression specialists, please click here.
