Depression can have an acute cause or no general cause at all but merely set in but there are connections with depression and acute trauma. Trauma or severe loss or experience can negatively affect a person and cause a severe grief reaction resulting in depression.
The article, “Trauma and Depression: What to Know” by Stephanie Wright takes a closer look at trauma and depression. She states,
“Depression can be both a direct and indirect consequence of trauma. However, not all depression is caused by trauma — other factors that cause depression include genetics, environment, and other medical conditions. Facing trauma and depression at once can be overwhelming. However, many people live happy and fulfilled lives with treatment and the support of others.”
