Depression & mental health

Everyone at some point in their lives goes through depressive stages when facing challenging situations; the difference with clinically-diagnosed depression is the temporality of the feeling of sadness and interference in the effort of the person. 


Depression is one of the most common mental disorders after anxiety, which negatively affects the way a person feels, thinks or acts, generating a constant feeling of sadness or loss of interest in activities of their liking. Depression generates a series of emotional and physical problems that affect the capacity of growth of the person in in general.


It’s Origin:

There are many causes that have been associated with the presence of depressive states in people that can even be generated by one or more factors, such as:

  • Family history,
  • Biochemical factors of the brain and neurotransmitters
  • Stress
  • Environmental factors
  • Personality problems


All depressive disorders belong to the mental health disorders category known as mood disorders. These disorders affect the state of mind of a person, making it consistently lower (depression and related disorders), or sometimes lower or sometimes times higher (bipolar and related disorders).
