Causes of Depression

Contributed by: Dennis Fortier, President, Medical Care Corporation

This site is devoted to distilling the important messages from the daily news and online content. Occasionally this means debunking aggressive treatment claims from the pharmaceutical industry but often times, it is the pharmaceutical manufacturers that provide the most useful consumer information.

Today I highlight the causes of depression posted at, a site sponsored by a major manufacturer of a popular anti-depressant.

Depression is a widespread problem that is slowly (too slowly by most accounts) shedding the stigma attributed to almost all brain-related disorders. The key to further progress in that regard is to promote further education about the causes of depression and to facilitate open discussion about its signs and symptoms.

I hope this posting will nudge us all gently in that direction.
