Schizophrenia is a complex illness. Mental health experts are not sure what causes it. However, genetic factors appear to play a role. Certain environmental events may trigger schizophrenia in people who are genetically at risk for it. You are more likely to develop schizophrenia if you have a family member with the disease.

Causes OF Major Recurrent Depression
There are many causes of major recurrent depression, including the death of a loved one, a family history of depression, unemployment and/or financial difficulties, low self-esteem, chronic illness, and the loss of a relationship.
There are three classes of treatment for major recurrent depression: anti-depressant medications, psychotherapy, and electroconvulsive therapy (ECT).
Anti-depressants are psychiatric drugs used to alleviate mood disorders and include such drugs as monoamine oxidase inhibitors and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. Anti-depressant medications almost always are prescribed to those suffering from major depression and are found to be particularly effective when taken in conjunction with psychotherapy.
