Causes for Clinical Depression

Causes for clinical depression are many and no single factor has been identified.  Research points to many possibilities for it's development.

The depressed mood usually starts because of one of two situations: to few of your interactions or situations have positive outcomes, or to many of them have negative outcomes. Some people become depressed only once in a lifetime, while others may have recurring episodes throughout their life.

This "common cold of mental health" can occur under many circumstances but most commonly is present in these three situations:

1) Severe Loss

In this situation, the individual has experienced a sudden, perhaps surprising severe loss. This loss may be the death of a loved one, loss of a job, loss of friendship, or other grief process.

Sometimes people get seriously depressed after something like a divorce (in the family) or marital separation, major financial problems or setbacks, a messed up home life, health problems (in the family) or breaking up with a boyfriend or girlfriend. 

In cases of severe loss, the patient can clearly identify what is creating the depressed mood.  Other more subtle factors that lead to a loss of identity or self-esteem may also contribute.

2) Long-Term Stress

This situation is more prevalent than that of sudden loss. Typically, the person is depressed but can't quite put the finger on the reason. The depressed state creeps up on you, and you may offer comments such as: "I don't know what's wrong!  I don't know how I feel.  My feelings are numb."

To help you figure things out, review the past 18 months, like running a video tape of your life through your mind. Look at the stress you've been under, the amount of responsibility, the number of pressures, and the number of hassles. 

3) Genetics/Biochemical Changes/Personality

Several research papers have reported findings, which suggest that relatives of patients with major depressive disorders have a higher prevalence of depressive issues than people in the general population.  You may have a predisposition to depression.

In research focusing on biochemical correlates of depression, a lot of attention has focused on chemicals that transmit nerve impulses from one neuron to another in the brain.   Any number of circumstances can bring on a biochemical change in the brain, whether sever loss or long term stress.

Several theories related to depressed moods have been developed regarding personality types.  Certain personality patterns such as low self-esteem or extreme pessimism about the future tend to increase the chances of becoming depressed.
