Depression

Authored by DesiMD Doctor on 12 Apr 2013 - 01:06.

Depression is a clinical syndrome which includes several types of conditions ranging from sub-clinical to clinical stages.

Biological issues which are related to depression are genetic and family history. If somebody who has history of depression, those types of patients are easily prone for depression even with very little psycho-social issues. But if somebody who doesn't have any family history can also be affected when there are more severe psycho-social issues such as financial, housing issues, poor social support, etc. So various biological and pyscho-social issues that causes depression ultimately lead to an imbalance in the mind, where there is a deficiency of neurochemicals in the mind and how these neurotransmitters interact with neurons, finally affecting the communication between the neurons that are mainly involved and control the emotions.
