When that "down" mood, along with other symptoms, lasts for more
than a couple of weeks, the condition may be clinical depression.
Clinical depression is a serious health problem that affects the total

and appearance, academic performance, social activity and the ability to
handle everyday decisions and pressures. (Source: excerpt from What to do When a Friend is Depressed: NIMH)
