There are millions, even billions of chemical reactions going on within your brain and nervous system that affect your mood, perceptions and your outlook on life. Two people with depression will have entirely different reasons for their depression and hence there is no single treatment that works best. Scientists are still working on the biology of depression and trying to identify the communication patterns among cells, the brain reactions and how genetics and lifestyle events affect the development of depression and anxiety.
There is no single root cause for depression and anxiety, it can evolve from varied social, psychological and biological factors.
