Why am I depressed?
There can be many reasons for the cause of your depression, and depression is usually something that develops over time. Often, we have a combination of life events and continuing difficulties that lead to an increased feeling of stress and sadness. For some, it can also stem from an increase in personal factors like family history, severe medical illness or drug, and alcohol use.
