Depression usually comes from a combination of recent events, other longer-term or personal factors.

Some personal factors are family history, personality, serious medical illness, and drug and alcohol use. The stress can lead to depression. Many people with depression also have drug and alcohol problems. Some people may have a bigger risk of having depression because of their personality.

Some people want to die because of depression. According to beyondblue.org.au, suicide is the leading cause of death for Australians aged between 15-44. Around 3,000 people die of suicide every year. 8 people is and average of that everyday. “Talk to someone” said Areli Ocampo. If you see someone struggling talk to them, look out for them, make sure they are okay. If you find someone that’s down and you talk to them it might make them happy, maybe make them feel like someone actually cares. You can even call 800273TALK(8255).

Drugs and alcohol can change the way your brain and body works. It can be tempting to use drugs if your going through a rough time. However, these are addictive things that could cause symptoms of depression.

If you’ve ever met a bipolar person you would know that they are the happiest people or they could turn and be the saddest people. Sometimes that can lead to depression to. There’s two types of phases. Manic and depressive phase. Manic phase may last weeks or months. Depressive phase may also last weeks or months. Symptoms are mood, behavioral, cognitive, psychological, sleep, and weight. Their mood can go back and forth.

Well, there’s a lot of ways depression happens. “Ask someone whos been in the same situation as you” said Grissel Jurado. Maybe if you talk to someone whos been in the same situation as you would understand better. There are treatments such as therapies, medication, medical procedure, and specialists. A lot of people have depression. Your not the only one.

    Thanks for picking such a relevant issue and writing such a clear, well-written piece Celeste. I have a family member diagnosed as bipolar, and while it’s a constant struggle, she’s still an incredible person that deserves to have friends and be supported. I like how you mentioned the different factors, some environmental and some hereditary, that contribute to the mental illness. Being depressed doesn’t mean someones “crazy”. It does mean they need support like everyone else does. Anyhow, I’m impressed with your coverage of the issue.
