Depression in the workplace is majorly caused by high expectations from employees, which subject them to pressure. Varying types of depression differently affect people. However, these types have common symptoms such as aches and pains, lack of energy, sleep changes, and appetite changes. The primary examples of depression include major depression, persistent depression, bipolar disorder, and situational depression. This paper discusses approaches that can be used by law enforcement and organizations to manage depression in the workplace. It also discusses the various categories of depression and how they affect people's daily tasks.
