Definition

A depressed mood and a loss of interest or pleasure are the key symptoms of depression. Depression is highly negatively correlated with quality of life. For example, research has found that police officers with depression have significantly lower quality of life scores across domains on the 12-item Short-Form Health Survey (SF-12) than do police officers without depression.
