What is Depression?

Depression is a neurological disorder in which it makes the person feel troubled. It can affect the person for a few days or it can turn into a severe medical issue. Depression can be caused by bullying, stress or a traumatic event, such as loosing an immediate family member. Depression is the leading cause of self harm/suicide. Medical treatments such as anti-depressants may help but it is not a permanent solution.

Depression: Past vs. Present

In the 1900s, there was little to no explanation to why a person was "depressed". Since there was no understanding of how to cure it, many patients were neglected. Due to technological advances, scientists have made a temporary solution for depression, which are anti-depressants.
