Depression is a severe medical illness. It can negatively affect you in many kinds of ways, like how you feel and act. Depression can also lead to death, which is a significant issue worldwide. Why do people get depression? This is because if people lose their job, for example, this will cause negativity, which can also lead to death too. For instance, a 13-year-old boy named Ryan Halligan committed suicide due to depression. He was bullied at school and even on the internet. That's how serious depression can be. Facebook is one of the social media sites that can cause despair. Another reason why people get depressed is that of abnormal activity of neural circuits (a course that sends different kinds of information to the brain) have gone haywire. This only makes us wonder: What will depression lead up to?
