It certainly can be, but there are so many other causes of depression - some of which we cannot fully understand. Let me tell you though, no matter the cause of your depression - it is not your fault. No one asks to become depressed, and it is a really painful and isolating experience. Whether it’s a chemical imbalance, a result of a traumatic event, something you’ve had since birth or a condition that has developed over-time... we are here to support you with your struggles. You’re more than welcome to reach out to a volunteer on here 24/7, and we will be there to listen to you.
