Nobody knows exactly what causes the depression. It is clear that the genetic factors are important in many cases of depression.
The depression seems to occur in families (like other upheavals of the mood), and approximately 30% of the predisposition to the depression are due to genetic influences.
The stressful events of life play a role in the home or the relapse of the depression. The continuous conflicts with other people can affect our well-being, like other social and environmental stressful factors, as the financial difficulties, the retirement, unemployment, the childbirth, the solitude or the loss of somebody or something important. In vulnerable people, these disagreeable events of life can be sufficient to cause or to make worse a depressive disease.
The characteristics of personality of a person are an important factor. When the people are depressed, they generally have a very negative vision of themselves and the world. They do not appreciate the good things, and the bad things seem overwhelming. Some people lie down to see the things this way, even when they are not gotten depressed. In other words, they can have a depressive style of personality.
Another possible cause of depression that does not have to be ignored is the physical disease or medecines. The glandular fever, the contraceptive influenza, hepatitis, thyroid hormones, anemia, diabetes, pills, the alcohol and other substances of abuse or other medecines, as which is used for arterial pressure or heart affections of, can cause depression symptoms.
