Here are the different types of depression.

If you tend to have continuous outbursts
of temper either physical or verbal,
and it happens three times a week,
that is one of the symptoms for disruptive mood dysregulation disorder.
Other symptoms that you could experience are
feeling sad or moody besides the anger three times a week
or having severe outbursts.
It’s more likely that you have this disorder
if these symptoms have occurred for more than a year
or if the symptoms started before the age of 10.
