  • Life events: Any unpleasant life event that has adversely affected the life of an individual is the most common cause of depression in most cases. The life event could be related to any domain like work issues, relationships, financial problems, bereavement and others. All this leads to extreme pressure building within an individual and he starts feeling down and starts to derogate his self worth.
  • Drugs: It is always said that self medication is dangerous to one health, but still many people tend to overlook this statement and take medicines from chemists by just stating few symptoms. It is seen that in such cases, the medicines react negatively and may also lead to depression in some cases.
  • Abuse of alcohol: Excessive intake of alcohol is sure to lead you towards depression, as strong links are found between the two. Even abuse of recreational drugs leads to depression in many cases.
  • Past head injury: This is a rare case, but it is found in some people. The previous head injury might have damaged some brain cells and may lead to some mental disorders including depression.
