    Hello lee1987,
    I have listed below the most common causes of depression:
    – Genetics and Biology
    – Brain Chemistry Imbalance through the imbalance of neurotransmitters
    – Female Sex Hormones: This happens when they are in their menopause or mensuration when their hormones become imbalanced.
    – Circadian Rhythm Disturbance: this leads to seasonal affective disorder
    – Poor Nutrition
    – Physical Health Problems
    – Stressful Life Events
    – Use of Drugs and alcohol
    – Grief and Loss
