Depression is a sign of mental illness, and life at that time can seem absolutely worthless, marked with negative energy, that even borders around suicidal tendencies. According to Doctors, an aberration in the brain chemistry causes the depression, which is perhaps ignited by stress, bereavement, physical illness or drug abuse.

The silver lining to this common ailment is that, it is definitely treatable. Mild depression can be offset by lifestyle changes that include sensible and healthy eating combined with regular exercise. Anti-depressants can come to the rescue of cases with moderate or severe depression combined with counselling and psychotherapy. The antidepressants are not addictive in most of the cases.
