Response from Dr. Horwath
Depression often occurs for no apparent reason. It is now recognized that some people develop depression without a discernable stressor or life event. Depression sometimes develops due to biological factors that we don't fully understand. We do know that some types of depression, such as depression that begins at a young age, run in families and probably have a strong genetic influence.
