formation of depression types

I think it would be beneficial for the scientific community and mental health professionals to formally create types of depressions, and then create targeted therapies. These types must be based on root causes, not general symptoms. The research and treatment statistics I've seen have been grouping depression suffers into a collective whole, without taking into account why they are depressed in the first place. How can they rationally expect that one therapy will improve something that has two totally different causes?


Great comment. You are right! Everyone's depression is different. Simply, depression is not a disease, it is a symptom of something wrong in our bodies which could be physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. You can't treat symptoms without knowing the cause - that's a band aid approach which can only be temporary. Our research covers all the major pieces of the pie I've listed above but together we continue digging. Thanks for your contribution!
