Anxiety: Anxiety and depression can certainly be seen in the same individual. The part of the brain responsible for causing depression can also lead to anxiety. The same neurotransmitters are involved in both systems so we often times see both of these conditions in the same person.

Depression: The low mood and worry that accompanies depression often produces consistent anxiety. These are for the most part treatable difficulties so ask for help if you are suffering as soon as possible. Best.
