A Definition

Depression or Major Depressive Disorder is a serious mental illness that causes feelings of hopelessness, loss of interest, and increased feelings of guilt or worthlessness that can span anywhere from weeks to years. Unlike normal feelings of sadness, major depressive disorder is persistent and usually interferes with one’s daily functions or ability to experience pleasure in life. It can result from a variety of causes including trauma, stress, environmental factors, chemical imbalance within the brain, or a genetic predisposition to developing the condition.

There are a variety of treatments used to alleviate depressive symptoms from medication to therapy to Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation. Every individual reacts differently to different treatments, so it may take several tries to figure out the course of action that’s right for you.
