    Do you think that depression and getting away from people will solve your problems ?

    - Why do some people surrender to life compression or sad events ?
    - How about focusing on the full half of the glass and not the empty half ?
    - If you become depressed , what are the problems you have solved ?
    - Why do not you escape toward forward , and struggle against frustrating events ?

    Depression is first a spiritual condition, not simply psychological.  Wounds to our individual spirit are the roots of most depression (a small percentage   caused by toxicity issues), and depressed people aren't people who've chosen to surrender to sad events or to look at the glass as half empty.  Getting to the roots of depression, rather than treating it with medication, will lift a person out of depression.  We look for the quick fixes with medications or sometimes with talk therapy, and both these things help to some extent, but medications are harmful over the long term, and they never treat the roots of depression; all they do is cover things up for a while.  Spiritual conditions require spiritual solutions.

      I agree with about most of your comment , but depression is not first a spiritual condition . Depression is a dangerous psychological behavior and attitude responsible for escaping of the depressed one from facing the challenges of life .

      You and I don't agree at all.  It's true that a depressed person has attitudes that are self-defeating, fearful of facing life challenges; however, these attitudes are rooted in a spiritual condition.  Scripture points this out in many places.

      I will write a hub about depression and will point to its causes and management , especially from the Islamic point of view.

    Act happy and be happy. Cognitive behavioral therapy is definitely the way to go to treat depression. I have been there and done that and it works.
    I don't agree with Hxprof that "spirituality" is a valid treatment for depression. It is NOT a "spiritual" issue that causes depression.
    Depression is caused by many overwhelming real world issues and is sometimes chemical/hormonal in nature, sometimes it is overwhelming physical conditions, and sometimes overwhelming issues entirely out of control of the victim.
    The key is that the depressed person is no longer in control of their physical or emotional state.
    With me, it was mostly chemical (serotonin imbalance), hormonal (diabetes) and physical (poverty).
    I had to take anti-depressants, get control of my diabetes, and finish my education so that I could get a decent paying job.
    Never once did I feel that it was "spiritual", and if someone had tried to tell me it was, I would have been flabbergasted!
    I am no longer on anti-depressants, I do still take insulin for my diabetes, and I have just retired from a 38 year career in the medical field. I am no longer depressed, but I do still take the "B" vitamins (anti-stress).
    Depression requires focusing on the "good" things in your life.It also requires letting go of the undesirable things in your life.
    I took long vacations on the beach, alone. This made me happier than anything else I did, so I made it a regular part of my year.
    We must do what makes us happy, either alone or with others. Whatever works is the correct treatment.

      Thanks a lot Austinstar for telling us about your experience,because I believe that knowledge and experience are important to understand what we are facing in our life .
      But we should know that depression needs both cognitive and faithful treatment.

    As someone with a clinical depression diagnosis, depression is definitely NOT a spiritual condition nor is it something that a person can just "think" away with happy thoughts. Depression is a mental illness that affects chemicals in your brain, which alter the way you perceive the world and think. It also wreaks havoc on your body, causing you to feel tired all the time, having little to no appetite, and either sleeping too much or too little.

    Depression is a sickness of the brain. But the brain is still an organ in the human body and so depression should be treated as the disease it is. There are a lot of factors behind potential causes - but most psychologists have determined that in 50% of cases depression is hereditary.

      Causes of depression may be genetic or environmental, exposure to stress and sad or bad events are important predisposing factors leading to depression.So treatment should be Cognitive-behavioral therapy and interpersonal,not only pharmacological.

    If a person is going through depression, it would be a smart idea to avoid individuals that are toxic. The people to avoid while recovering from depression are those that don't give you uplifting advice. Take your problems to the heavenly Father in prayer, at least you won't have to worry about him telling someone else. Daily Bible meditation helps mild to severe depression, which will be important for a mind renewing technique. It starts from the inside-out, so this is why renewing the mind with daily Bible meditation is a more permanent fix than any temporary fix.
