Is Depression Hereditary ?

Many times I have heard people ask questions such as: “is depression hereditary”, “is depression genetic”, “is depression hereditary disease”, “is depression curable”, “is depression a disability” and so on. One thing I have noticed is that many people only know about the signs of depression and various ways of treating it. However, most people lack sound knowledge of its basis –whether it is hereditary or not. The question of whether depression is hereditary or not is what I will tackle in this article. Read on and you will get an answer that will convince you. However, I will not fail to mention other causes of depression before affirming whether it is hereditary or not.
