Melancholy is a type of depression that was considered prevalent throughout the twentieth century, so much so that the depressions were classified into two groups: melancholy and other depressions. However, from the classification of psychiatric disorders in DSM-III in the eighties, the melancholy was declassified and marginalized: it went from being the life of the classifications of unipolar depression to be a subtype more. In these times when the concept of melancholia has been relegated, a group of professionals Bellvitge Hospital presents this work that provides all the information on this psychiatric disorder, information considered essential for diagnosis and treatment of depression.
