ACUTE DEPRESSION

1. a recent, unforeseen oncoming of depression. 2. a serious bout of depression, classified by numerous more signs or symptoms, many of which are unnecessary for diagnosis of a major depressive bout.

ACUTE DEPRESSION: "Acute depression often sets in when people relocate to new climates, where they may not know many people, or during the grief process, such as following the death of a loved one."
