Why Does Depression Happen?

One can experience depression for a number of reasons. Sometimes a life event triggers depression. Sometimes it happens after a psychological trauma, such as an assault. People with other mental health disorders, such as anxiety disorder are at risk of depression. Substance abuse and prescription medication addiction are risk factors for depression too. For some, there is no particular event that triggers depression and someone can feel it seemingly at random.

Whatever triggers someone’s depression, it’s more than just feeling sad. Sadness is a temporary reaction to loss and other life events. The feelings caused by depression are sometimes so strong that they prevent them from living a normal life. Depression treatment in Los Angeles can help someone manage their symptoms to live a happy and healthy life.
