Depression has been observed to be hereditary in some cases. it is said to run in some family’s genes which means it can be inherited from past generation.

This makes genetics one of the causes of depression as it can be passed from generation to generation.

Clear way: someone can just have depression as an inheritance from his/her pass generation.

Important Event

previous head injury is one of the causes of depression, and this mostly happen as a result of ignorance.

Head injuries are meant to be thoroughly and carefully treated at the time of the injury as the improperly treated injuries can eventually result to depression.

Loss (e.g. death loss, property loss etc.)

depression can be caused as a result of certain losses which includes:

Death loss: such as death of someone (e.g. a sponsor) so dear to you.
Property losses; an example is goods sinking in the sea, investment and establishment collapses and so on.

Sudden news of the earlier mentioned creates a level of tension upon the person in question.

This likely leads to hopeless feelings and this may result to depression eventually.  Though may not be instantly.

Substance abuse

This has never been of any good to anyone in generally.

Inappropriate consumption of certain substances like drugs, drinks and so on has been said to be factor that can certainly be among the causes of depression

Clear way: substances abuse affects our healthy living and thereby causes depression.

Past Abuse (emotional, sexual and physical abuse): 

Apart from the earlier mention substance abuse other abuses such as past emotional, sexual and physical tends to be other causes of depression

It is mostly common when these abuses are done against children. The pains and scars keeps building up in their mind, and implanting depression. 

Conflict Among Friends and Family

Certain conflict in the family or amongst friends, is one of the causes of depression.

It makes victim of such conflict depressed; as the conflicts may cost their sponsorship withdrawal or other issues which might render them hopeless.


Just as some medications has an effect on us, certain medication have also been observed to be one of the causes of depression.
