|depression holder (n., adj.)|
Flag by localhazard
A depression holder is a type of headmate which holds onto depression, often to prevent other headmates from feeling depressed. This may refer to depression linked to a mood disorder, grief-based depression, loneliness, or other types of depression.
These headmates are most common in systems with comorbid mood disorders, but a mood disorder is not required to have a depression holder.
