What is Depression?

Depression can have many different root causes. The cause for depression can vary from person to person and may even be multiple things. It is often hard for doctors to pick out a singular cause for depression. The human brain is so complex that there are still many things we do not understand. However, there are many theories on the root of depression including:

  • Stressful life changes.
  • Traumatic events
  • Grief over the loss of a loved one.
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Genetic or hereditary factors.

It is important to know that each patient is different and there may be multiple causes for your depression. It takes time to figure out the root cause to properly treat it.

Symptoms

Many people suffering from depression will draw away from loved ones. These individuals may also lose interest in their favorite activities.
