Do you disagree with that depression is caused by a chemical imbalance?

I know somebody with a depressive disorder and it was caused by her parents not giving her enough affection while growing up. Her parents never told her they loved her or hugged her. That caused her to become a depressed adult.

    I think the general consensus is no. Its not just caused by a chemical imbalance. That could contribute and maybe cause depression in some people but there are many other causes like genetic predisposition, medications a person is on, medical conditions, childhood trauma etc.

    There is Situational depression and clinical depression,  the person you know has Situational depression.  Clinical depression is caused by a chemical imbalance.

    any trauma  or death of a loved one or even a pet or being bullied etc   and yes indeed  not been treated lovingly by the main people in life can cause depression
