Did you know there are many potential causes of depression?
Although there is no single, definitive answer to the question of cause, many factors - psychological, biological, environmental and genetic - likely contribute to the development of depression. Causes can occur in any combination, and can include genetic influences (such as family history of the disease); biochemical factors (such as hormonal fluctuations or chemical imbalance); psychological challenges (such as social anxiety and stress), and trauma (such as suffering the loss of a loved one or enduring a violent crime). Take one step. It's never too late.
