Hi. I am a first year Psychology student and my first assignment is about depression. I should evaluate the claim “Depression is a biological disorder”. Can you give me some information whether that’s true or not because at this point I am really confused from all the theories about the etiology of the disorder.

Research, read journal articles. There is a biological component, but there are a lot of things that contribute to it.

It is a processing disorder... the mind is hard wired to find solutions and if it cannot do so, goes on a downward spiral of help!

- Serotonin theory: no substantial evidence, SSRIs work instantly yet don't 'work' for a number of weeks (even then its similar to placebo in mild - moderate depression)
- genetics: twin studies support a heritability, but not as much as say bipolar or schizophrenia
- Other more psychological theories: learned helplessness, behavioural learnt theories, Beck's negative triad/cognitive model, autographical mode network & cognitive control,
- bring together both in a stress diathesis model
