Depression is more than just feeling down for a couple of days. It is more than grief or sad feelings when there is a loss. Depression can be from genetic predisposition. It can also be from traumatic events that happened in a person’s past. They can also be due to a relative lack of neurotransmitters or vitamin deficiencies.
Depression can also occur from life transitions. Postpartum depression and anxiety is more common than once believed after the birth of a child. Becoming a caregiver can also incite feelings of being overwhelmed often. The death of a loved one whether expected or unexpected can bring grief that feels insurmountable. The loss of a relationship through divorce or separation can also be daunting.
