Clinical Depression Trait
Depression ranges in seriousness from mild, temporary episodes of sadness to severe, persistent depression. Clinical depression is the more-severe form of depression, also known as major depression or major depressive disorder. It isn’t the same as depression caused by a loss, such as the death of a loved one, or a medical condition, such as a thyroid disorder. Symptoms are usually severe enough to cause noticeable problems in relationships with others or in day-to-day activities, such as work, school or social activities.
This trait can be difficult to play but that is the point because depression, especially clinical depression, is difficult to live with in real life as well. I hope this trait will give people who don’t suffer from this ailment first-hand some better perspective and a little more respect for those that do.

v1.35 – Added a human-only restriction on the trait so it won’t randomly show up on pets.

There is now a Reward Trait version of this trait by request. If you don’t want to take up one of your three main trait slots with the Clinical Depression Trait, you can pick three other traits then start the game, go to the rewards store and select “Clinical Depression” as a Reward Trait for 100 points. Just don’t apply both trait versions on the same Sim at the same time. That would not be a good idea. The new reward trait version is a separate file so you can choose whether you want to install it into your game or not. The choice is yours!

I created this mod using the Mod Constructor v4 by Zerbu. I also utilized Sims 4 Studio for several edits, and it was invaluable so thank you to the team behind that program as well! In addition, I made extensive use of the online TDESC Browser along with Scumbumbo’s Tuning Error Notifier. Without these tools, this mod would never have worked!
