SITUATIONAL DEPRESSION

Posted by Thomas Brown | May 04, 2020 | 0 Comments

There are a number of different types of depression. The 5th Edition of The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Health Disorders lists nine distinct types. The type that I deal with in workers’ compensation/job injury cases is what we would call situational depression. This depression is triggered by life-changing events such as serious injury and chronic pain, loss of one’s job, and for most men a job is how we identify ourselves. This can be extremely devastating.
