About Major Depressive Disorder

Depression or sadness is a common phase experienced by humans and is a natural part of life.

When a near or dear one passes away naturally his /her loved one feels sad. It may happen in life at any age. It might be any experience related to divorce, sudden death, illness, confinements in jails or mental hospitals, financial crisis, debt etc. These situations can cause severe stress and tension which gradually increases with time and a person develops depressive illness or what we called as depression.
