Transcript of Depression

The causes of depression are not clear, but there are factors that could be involved such as: biological differences, brain chemistry, hormones, inherited traits, and life events.
Risk Factors
Depression usually comes from something in your life. To be at risk for depression, a person would need to fall under one of these factors: depression when started as teen or child; history of anxiety disorder, borderline personality disorder, or PTSD; drug and alcohol abuse; low self-esteem, overly dependent, or pessimistic; illness; medications; stressful events; and blood relatives with history.
Symptoms include: feeling of sadness or happiness; outbursts, frustration over small problems; lack of interests; sleeping issues; change in appetite; anxiety; slowed movements or thinking; self loathing; trouble concentrating; suicidal thoughts; and unexplained physical problems.
Depression is a mood disorder that causes a continuous feeling of sadness. It affects a person's way of thinking and behaviors. It can also cause emotionally and physical issues. Obtaining a normal life can be difficult.
There are a lot of treatments available for depression. Medications and counseling are most effective. People can take antidepressants to reduce the symptoms. Finding the right medication can be difficult and may take a few tries until the right one is found for that particular person. Other treats are electroconvulsive therapy and transcranial magnetic stimulation.
Complications include: gain of weight, alcohol or substance abuse, anxiety or social phobia, family conflicts, work problems, social isolation, suicidal feelings or attempts, self-harm, premature death from other conditions.
