The three types of depression are:

  • Major depression with psychotic features.
  • Major depression with melancholic features
  • Major depression with atypical features.

Major depression with psychotic features

Major depression with psychotic features describes the condition of an auto accident victim who experiences depression along with reduced contact with reality (psychosis). This included false beliefs (delusions) or seeing or hearing something that isn’t really there (hallucinations), according to the Medline Plus Medical Encyclopedia from the U.S. National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health.

Major depression with melancholic features

This type of major depression subtype usually involves features that are primarily seen in strictly biologically-based depression. As such, medication and electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) are frequently more effective forms of treatment than psychotherapy.

Major depression with atypical features

Unlike suffers of the other major depression subtypes, suffers of major depression with atypical features can experience an improved mood as a result of positive events occurring in their environment.
