Mental Health Awareness- Depression

Mental health is a major concern worldwide and India is not far behind in sharing this.


Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest.


Depression is the most complicated of all our emotions and yet one of the most common psychological problems a person can experience.

Causes

  • Abuse. Physical, sexual, or emotional abuse can make you more vulnerable to depression.

  • Age. People who are elderly are at higher risk of depression.

  • Conflict. Personal conflicts or disputes with family members or friends can cause depression.

  • Death or a loss. Grief after the death or loss of a loved one, though natural, can increase the risk of depression.

  • Gender. Women are about twice as likely as men to become depressed. The hormonal changes that women go through at different times of their lives may play a role.

  • Genes. A family history of depression may increase the risk.

  • Major events. Even good events such as starting a new job, graduating, or getting married can lead to depression. So can moving, losing a job or income, getting divorced, or retiring. However, the syndrome of clinical depression is never just a "normal" response to stressful life events.

  • Other personal problems. Problems such as social isolation due to other mental illnesses or being cast out of a family or social group can contribute to the risk of developing clinical depression.

  • Serious illnesses. Sometimes, depression happens along with a major illness or may be triggered by another medical condition.
