Since I just finished my exams, here's the clinical criteria for depression (off the top of my head).

1. At least 5 of the following 9 symptoms (with at least one of the first two listed):
-Loss of pleasure in normally enjoyable activities
-Low mood for many days

-Changes in appetite (usually poor appetite)
-Changes in sleep pattern (usually insomnia)
-Feelings of worthlessness, anger or guilt that are unreasonable/excessive.
-Constant fatigue
-Trouble thinking or concentrating
-Feeling increasing agitated or subdued
-Suicidal thoughts
2. Symptoms persist for most days for at least 2 weeks.
3. Symptoms are not due to other mental disorders/medications/etc.
4. Symptoms cause significant distress to the person and affects his daily life.

Yup. Exam stress usually does not equate to depression btw. Unless you are stressed to the point of breakdown.

The best way is to tell someone about it!
