Feelings of depression are caused by a chemical change that affects how the brain functions.

A normally functioning brain is a giant messaging system that controls everything from your heartbeat, to walking, to your emotions. The brain is made up of billions of components with called "nerve cells" or "neurons" . These nerve cells send and receive messages from the rest of all your body, using brain chemicals "neurotransmitters" .

These chemicals in the human brain are responsible for our emotional state. Depression happens when these chemical messages are not correctly send or received between brain cells, which affect the communication.

(i. e., A telephone): If your telephone has a weak signal, you can't hear the person on the other end. so it is disabled or unclear.

There is also good news for the people who already suffering such a feeling, it is that there are many forms of treatment that can help them cope with depression, including medications that can fortify feeble signals by raising the levels of certain neurotransmitters, or by improving the nerve cells ability to process signals. This ensures that the brain’s vital messages are delivered—loud and clear.
