Clinical Depression: The Role of Genetics
Note: Citations included, but form is not correct
Every year more than 19 million American Adults suffer from clinical depression. Many people begin to feel depressed as the result of some recent, notable event or events, which occurred in one's life. However, these events are often not the the only cause of a major depressive episode. Family history and genetics play a significant part in the greater likelihood of someone becoming depressed in their lifetime.
Clinical depression is a serious and common disorder of mood that is pervasive, intense and attacks the mind and body at the same time. The symptoms of depression include feeling sad and blue, not enjoying activities once found pleasurable, having difficulty doing things that used to be easy to do, restlessness, fatigue, changes in sleep, appetite or weight, inability to make decisions, feelings of worthlessness, and thoughts of death or suicide. Unlike feeling down-hearted or blue every now and then, clinical depression persists and does not go away on it's own. Clinical depression is an illness
that can last for months or years if left untreated. 30% of all clinically depressed
patients attempt suicide; half of them succeed.
