What is it?

Depression is a mood disorder, it is feelings of severe despondency and dejection. Depression is a disease that ends up changing daily life for you and causing issues for you and those who love you. Causes can be biological, environmental, and psychological factors or that is what researchers believe.


One method of treatment is pills that are prescribed by the doctor to treat the patient and pick his or her mood up. Electroconvulsive therapy is another way but highly looked down at because of how it harms the patient. The patient is put to sleep then has electric currents passed through the brain, this is a last result.
