Depression is a psychological mood disorder that results in many emotional, physical, behavioural, and cognitive symptoms, which can significantly impact an individual's level of functioning. Depression can result from one factor or a combination of many, including an imbalance of chemicals in the brain, history of trauma or abuse, hormonal changes (i. e. post-birth), difficult life events (such as divorce, loss of job, or low income), chronic illness, or substance abuse. People with a family history of depression are also more likely to develop the condition. "Seasonal" Depression is a form of depression that occurs in association with a loss of daylight, affecting adults during fall or winter months. Typical symptoms of depression may include sadness, loneliness, loss of interest in hobbies or previously enjoyed activities, decreased appetite or sex drive, excessive fatigue, sleep disturbances, lack of motivation, restlessness, or concentration difficulties, among others.
