5 Forms of Depression Explained (Diagnosis Criteria, Symptoms & Help)

This video explains 5 forms of depression: Major Depressive Disorder, Persistent Depressive Disorder (Dysthymia), Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder (DMDD), Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD), and Postpartum Depression. Timestamps are below as depressive disorders are nuanced & somewhat complicated to diagnose. Each depressive disorder explained has unique symptoms and criteria. Mental health professionals (Therapists, psychiatrists, social workers, etc) use the DSM-V to identify the following 5 types of depressive disorders:

1:01 Major Depressive Disorder
4:33 Persistent Depressive Disorder (Dysthymia)
6:41 Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder (DMDD)
9:57 Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD)
12:44 Postpartum Depression
