What is Depression?
Depression is a mood disorder which causes an ongoing feeling of sadness or loss of interest. This lifestyle disease affects people from all over the world. It can take over anyone's life at any stage. Depression affects how people think, how they feel, behave, and it can lead to multiple of emotional and physical problems. Those with the disorder many have problems doing normal day-to-day activities, and it also may make you feel as if life isn’t worth leading which can lead to suicide.

How Does Depression Occur?
Family History:
Depression can run in families, therefore means a lot of people may be at an increased genetic risk. This isn’t guaranteed, but it is possible.

Some people may a risk of depression because of they personality. This is especially if they have a habit of worrying a lot about things, have a low self-esteem, are perfectionists, are sensitive to personal criticism or are self-critical and negative.

Serious medical illness:
Having a medical illness can trigger depression. One way it can trigger is that the medical illness can bring out the disorder directly, or it can contribute to depression through worry and stress over the medical illness, especially if it involved long-term management or serious pain.

Drug and alcohol use:
Drug and alcohol use can lead to and result from depression. A lot of people that have the disorder also have drug and alcohol problems.
Who is more likely to be affected by Depression?
It is said that women are twice as likely to experience major depression than men, however, the reasons are not exactly clear. There are observations about the gender differences through.

Hormonal differences is said to be the major explanation
Women tend to be more involved in personal relationships than man and they suffer more from it when they are disrupted
Seasonal Affective Disorder is four times more common in women than men

How many people are affected by Depression?
Beyond Blue states that around 1 million Australians develop depression in one year. On average, 1 in 6 people - 1 in 5 women and 1 in 8 men will have depression at a stage in their life. On a global scale, it is estimated that 350 million people of all ages get depression.
How does Depression affect lives?
The person with depression develops a behaviour where they become a complete new person, whether others can see it or not. They don’t go out as often, they don’t get things done at work or school, withdraw from close friends and family, stop doing their favorite activities, find it hard to concentrate and may even rely on alcohol and drugs. This is mainly because of physical consequences of the mental illness, Those that are depressed may feel tired all the time, sick and run down, they may be having headaches, have a loss of appetite or even gain a significant amount of weight or loose a significant amount of weight.

The depressed could be feeling overwhelmed, guilty, irritable, frustrated, unhappy, not confident, indecisive, disappointed, miserable, and sad, as well as having thoughts such as “i’m a failure”, “i’m worthless”, and especially, “life’s not worth living” and “people would be better off without me.”

Not only does depression affect the person that has it, but it also affects those around them, such as family and friends as their family member/friend becomes a complete different person who shuts down.
Who can help?
A lot of people who have depression, can't quite admit that they have it and when they do, they might back down in going and seeking help. One can't as such convince their brain to stop having depression, although, there are different ways in which someone can work their way to stop having this lifestyle disease.
People with depression could:

Talk to friends and families
Talk to a psychiatrist
Contact kidshelp.com
Contact beyondblue.org.au
Talk to other organisations who strive to helping those with depression
Depression can lead to death, therefore, using people as a support system can really assist someone when they're suffering from a disorder as deep and major as depression.
