You don't believe in a patient's depression? Watch the watch!

Published in Archives of Psychiatric Nursing. 2008, vol. 22, no. 1, p. 50-51
Abstract Depressive states may at times be particularly tricky to ascertain or confirm during a time-limited consultation. For example, a patient may present with what has been termed as smiling depression. We present the case of a female patient with bipolar II disorder whose difficult-to-ascertain depression could be confirmed by her automatic wristwatch, which regularly stopped when she was hypokinetic as a result of her depression.
