<dwarf> has slipped into depression...
Sunk into depression...

Depression is a temporary emotional breakdown experienced mainly by dwarves with high propensity to depression. Dwarves who are prone to anxiety will instead become oblivious, while those with anger management issues will throw tantrums.

Depressed dwarves will cancel any job they may be doing at the moment and mope around until they regain their composure. Unless stress levels are reduced, bouts of depression will repeat until the dwarf is eventually stricken by melancholy.
