Washington: A new study has found that people become more easily depressed following minor life stresses, partly because they have experienced early life adversities or prior depressive episodes. According to researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), both these situations may make people more sensitive to later life stresses. Although, most people are pulled down by significant adversities like the death of a loved one or getting fired, roughly 30 percent with first-time depression and 60 pc of people with a history of depression develop the disorder following relatively minor misfortunes.
The study showed that people who had lost a parent or had been separated from a parent for at least one year before the age of 18 and individuals who had experienced more episodes of depression over their lifetime became depressed following significantly lower levels of recent life stress. The study appears in the current online edition of the Journal of Psychiatric Research.ANI
