Does depression matter?

Depression, also known as major depressive disorder or clinical depression, is a prevalent mood disorder with roots in a mix of genetic, biological, environmental, and physiological factors. It's a complex condition influenced by various elements, including chronic pain, significant life changes, stress, certain medications, and a family history of depression. The symptoms, such as a pervasive sense of hopelessness, diminished interest, and chronic fatigue, can profoundly impact an individual's thoughts, emotions, and daily functioning. Approximately 80% of adults dealing with depression face challenges in performing work, managing home responsibilities, and engaging in social activities. It's important to note that depression is a significant risk factor for suicide attempts, underscoring the urgency of understanding and addressing this mental health concern.
