Situational: In many instances, feeling down or depressed is due to the situation we find ourselves in. Many times changing your situation, such as restarting a lost relationship, can improve your mood. You must be careful not to associate changes in mood with the diagosis or cure of depression. Clincial depression is defined by more than just a changing mood.
