Depression/ Major Depressive Disorder (MDD)


Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. Also called major depressive disorder or clinical depression, it affects how you feel, think and behave and can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems. You may have trouble doing normal day-to-day activities, and sometimes you may feel as if life isn't worth living.

Symptoms occur most of the day, nearly every day and may include:

  • Feelings of sadness, emptiness or hopelessness

  • Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration

  • Loss of interest or pleasure in normal activities

  • Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much

  • Tiredness and lack of energy

  • Anxiety, agitation or restlessness

If you have been diagnosed with depression or experience the symptoms of it, you may be eligible to participate in research study. Compensation for time and travel may be available.
