Understanding the Causes and Symptoms of Depression
Depression is a medical illness that can cause a persistent low mood and other symptoms, such as tiredness or trouble sleeping. It can also lead to thoughts of suicide or self-harm. People who have several persistent symptoms of depression are usually treated with psychotherapy (talk therapy) and medication. Sometimes it takes time to find the right treatment, so it is important to be patient and to talk to your doctor about any changes you may notice.
Many things can trigger depression. It can be caused by a single event, such as a bereavement or the breakdown of a relationship, but it is more common to develop depression after repeated stressors that build up over time. Unemployment, a chronic illness or living in difficult social and economic circumstances can all increase the risk of depression. Some people are more susceptible to depression because of certain personality traits or temperament, and genetic vulnerability can also play a role.
Some of the most common symptoms of depression are sadness, feelings of worthlessness or guilt, a loss of interest in activities once enjoyed, feelings of hopelessness or helplessness, aches and pains and a general feeling of being unwell. People with depression may also feel anxious and restless, lose weight or gain weight, have trouble thinking clearly and have difficulty making decisions. In younger children, depression can manifest as irritability, tantrums or school refusal, and it can also make them more likely to abuse drugs or alcohol.
While it is often said that depression results from a chemical imbalance in the brain, scientists now know that the causes of depression are much more complex than simply having too little or too much of certain chemicals. There are millions, perhaps billions, of chemical interactions that work both inside and outside nerve cells to affect mood and emotions. It is possible that certain genes or early life experiences make some people more vulnerable to depression, but it’s more usual for depression to be triggered by stressful events or circumstances.
There is no one-size-fits-all treatment for depression. People who have depression often have to try a number of different treatments before they find what works best for them. Medications for depression are generally very safe, and newer antidepressants are less likely to cause side effects. If you are taking an antidepressant, be sure to tell your doctor if you have any new or worsening symptoms, especially if you have thoughts of hurting yourself or others. If you have suicidal thoughts, call 911 or contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. You can also seek support from a loved one, a health care professional or a minister or spiritual leader. It is also helpful to join a support group for people who are depressed. Many of these groups are available online.
