Signs of Depression Checklist

Causes

Many things can trigger Depression. Changes in life such as; job loss, transitions, death of a loved one, and divorce, are some examples of situational causes. Other triggers can be biological causes such as; hormone changes (puberty, pregnancy, post-partum, menopause, etc.), or reactions to illness and injury. Some people experience both situational and biological issues.

The brain consists of a giant messaging system of neurons that send messages to the body using brain chemicals called neurotransmitters. These brain chemicals (e.g. serotonin, norepenephrine, and dopamine) are responsible for our emotional state.

Depression and anxiety can occur when these messages are not delivered correctly between brain cells, disrupting communication.
