In brief: Resolving problems

Any circumstances in life can precipitate a depressive episode.
Usually, when this occurs there are feelings of hopelessness and helplessness to resolve the problem. The problem feels overwhelming to us and we lack the confidence to do anything about it. Talking to a mental health professional about the specific problem and whether there is depression is an important first step.
