In brief: Any situation
Sometimes we use situational depression synonymously with adjustment disorder with depressed mood.
You should expect a certain amount of low mood when something difficult happens. But we call it situational depression when the low mood persists or is more that one would expect. What situation would cause this reaction varies from person to person.
