Causes and Symptoms of Depression

Feeling low, tearful or unmotivated can begin to impact a range of aspects within the lives of sufferers, which is why it can be important to identify the causes of depression. These causes could be anything from a sudden life change, including the breakdown of a relationship, bereavement, having a baby or losing a job.
