There are 3 different types of depression disorders that you or your loved one can develop after a drunk driver car accident. The signs of depression vary based on the type of disorder that manifests, so it's useful to be able to differentiate between the 3 if you suspect that you or your loved one has developed a depressive disorder following a serious accident.
The 3 types of major depression are:
- depression with psychotic features, which is hallmarked by depressed experiences and isolation from reality, delusions, or hallucinations;
- depression with melancholic features, which is more common in those who are genetically predisposed towards depressive moods; and
- depression with atypical features, in which most sufferers can experience improved mood from positive experiences in their environment.
