What Causes Major Depression?

The severe major depression cause mainly can be a strong biological, rather than psychological one. So it is the question that 'is genetics or stress plays the major role in causing major depression' and the recent research has shown that both the factors are mainly responsible for major depression. Stress is the main cause only in the first two episodes of major depression, and will not be present in the later ones. But the genetics and temperament are the main leading role for other episodes of depression.

That means the stress is just the start of the major depression but after some duration it develops its own momentum and then stress is no longer needed. This is a common pattern seen in many medical cases. Thus, the treatment of depression is the stress, genetics and temperament should be considered equally.
