Depression, also known as Major Depressive Disorder or clinical depression, is a mood disorder that can cause severe symptoms, impacting the way you think, feel, and act. These symptoms can last from a few weeks to several years.
The cause of depression can vary from person to person. For some, depression can be triggered by a life event or transition. For others, it can be influenced by family history or physiology. Chronic health conditions, like chronic pain and diabetes can also lead to depression.
