Depression is considered as a condition in which an individual has constant feelings of sadness or loneliness, some individuals also have lack of desire to participate in activities that used to give them happiness or joy. More often, depression is caused by different events that may occur in the life of an individual. Some events that can take a toll on their emotional and psychological well-being include death of a loved one, relationship problems, career problems, and the like. If depression is not treated it may progress to severe depressive conditions such as major depressive disorders, clinical depression, and major depression that have detrimental effects on all aspects of an individual (mental, psychological, emotional, and social).
