TIPS & EXPERT ADVICE ON ESSAYS, PAPERS & COLLEGE APPLICATIONS

According to the World Health Organisation, more than 300
million people worldwide suffer from, or have previously suffered from,
depression with around 800,000 deaths being due to suicide as a direct result
of a mental disorder. In 2014, 19.7% of people in the UK aged 16 and over
showed symptoms of anxiety or depression, therefore meaning a 1.5% increase
from 2013 (Evans, Macrory & Randall, 2016). Following on from this, in 2013 6,233
suicides were recored in the UK alone for people aged 15 and older (Bromley t al, 2014). Mental health disorders,
specifically depression, are becoming more prominent in todays society, but why
is this and what can be done about it?

 

 

There are thought to numerous causes for depression among
individuals, and specifically among the adolescent population. Hansson, Chotai & Bodlund (2010) proposed that
depression can be thought of as multifactorial, meaning that multiple factors contribute
to the onset of depression and no one cause can be found. For example, some
research suggests that depression is down to biological causes, while other
research highlights the role of environmental factors in the development of
depression.
