It’s very easy for depression to go unnoticed or ignored. This may be because there are so many different types. For some, it may hit only at certain points, while they feel comparatively normal most of the time. For others, it may be severe to the point where they end up spending all their time in bed.
There are various causes for depression ranging from genetics to triggers. Hormonally, it is caused by an imbalance in serotonin. In most cases, counselling and therapy can be helpful. In more severe cases, antidepressants are administered.
There is still a major taboo around mental health issues, especially depression in many parts of the world. It is time we all understood that being depressed is not wrong; it is something we must overcome with support.
