There are so many different things that could cause someone to feel depressed. Although it is believed that a chemical imbalance is what causes people to start feeling depressed, there is a whole lot more to each person's story.[1] Believe it or not, depression can be caused by genetics.[2] Those who have family members with a history of depression are more likely to suffer from it than others. However, anyone can end up feeling this way.

 

There are people who become depressed because of situations they are in at the moment. They may be abused, neglected or feel ignored. They may be getting bullied at school or even at work. Some people become depressed after a traumatic experience, such as witnessing a death or getting into a serious car accident. Regardless of the cause of someone's depression, there is a way to get help. If you are suffering from depression, you can contact the crisis hotline to receive emotional support and guidance. Confidential Hotline Number: (212) 673-3000. The hotline is available 24-hours a day, so you can call whenever you need to.
