How We Help
What causes depression?
If you are diagnosed with depression, one of the following factors may be at play:
- Genetic and other biological factors affecting brain function
- A specific, distressing life event such as the loss of a loved one or an ideal
- Psychological factors, like a love relationship that isn't working as you'd hoped
Depression can last for short periods of time, or for years. With precise treatment, you can ease your suffering in less time and lessen the severity of future depressive episodes.
