MASKED DEPRESSION

is the deliberate and (potentially) dangerous hiding or masking of depressive mood swings in the personality of an individual. This maybe due misconceptions on treating depression and the social stigmas associated with mental illnesses.

MASKED DEPRESSION: "Individuals who are scared or disagree with the labelling of conditions typically mask them, for example with masked depression."
