10 Signs of High Functioning Depression

Better Brain, Better Game!

The symptoms of High Functioning Depression (HFD) are similar to that of clinical depression. Many people suffer from High Functioning Depression, and might not even know it; do ~you~ have HFD? 10 signs of High Functioning Depression include being more intelligent than the average cohort, having tendencies of perfectionism, and having a family history of depression. People with high functioning depression often try to endure it without getting proper help, which allows HFD to build up gradually more and more overtime. Those with HFD don’t engage in regular hobbies, and tend to confuse high functioning depression with burnout. People with high functioning depression might have symptoms of clinical depression. Do you have high functioning depression? Do you have any stories or coping mechanisms that you would like to share? Please let the Psych2Go community know, in the comment section!
