    Side question on this.

    Is depression diagnosed differently in Canada then in the US?

    Do they use simliar standards to the American Psychiatric Association DSM or do they have their own?

    Help me out, Canadians.

    Not a Canadian, but the ICD is more widely used for diagnosis worldwide than the DSM.

    WHO | International Classification of Diseases (ICD)

    People with major depression still have the ability to smile for a camera. It's keeping the smile that's an issue.

    This woman could have gone to a couple of social events and managed the depressive state, and still be seriously ill with depression. More to the point would be has she fully recovered and is she leading a normal life? Does she still require on-going medication and psychiatric treatment? Is she capable of going back to work?

    Apparently in Canada they diagnose it by looking at Facebook photos.

    But I'm not Canadian.

    Well, I'm sure the woman is depressed now.
