Why deep Depression in Young People?
As we know young people are full of emotions because they are in such a phase of life that they are undergoing chemical reactions, they are growing up, they are learning things. Emotional behaviors are not yet mature enough for them to be able to control their emotions and adjust to the environment.
As a result, they make mistakes in certain places that can cause them problems later on. And then when they think about this past state, they get upset which leads to Deep depression. untitled (usf.edu)
Break up in relation
Human attitudes include an attitude that he/she is attracted to the opposite sex and uses words for it. This attitude is also present in other animals but in humans, it has appeared in a very mature state. When children are young they are attracted to the opposite sex and always want to have this relationship.
But at the same time, some factors such as social, financial Problems or the intrusion of a third person into the couple’s life can lead to a breakup.
Because of this, they get depressed and some of them get caught up in such thoughts that they start blaming themselves and get attracted to some negative thoughts. The result comes in the form of the Deep Depression. Romantic relationship breakup: An experimental model to study effects of stress on depression (-like) symptoms (plos.org)
Comparing yourself with people
As human society evolved, so did the factor of comparison. That is, people began to compare themselves with each other in every matter.
Its main purpose is to be superior to others, whether it be matters of money, food, clothing and housing. Competition continues. But when a young person finds himself inferior in comparison, he himself will go into a deep depression and create an inappropriate situation for himself.

Wastage of time
Every action looks good on its own time and the work done on time gives the desired results. If In the past, young people have been faced with the problem that they do not realize the time and they are not able to make timely decisions and waste time. And then when they realize and realize this, they face a state of remorse and go into a deep depression.
Home Family problems and worries
Matters of home and family are very delicate, they have to be run very thoughtfully and wisely.
There is silence in many places and bold steps have to be taken in many places. But when domestic problems are not solved or are happening despite constant efforts, the youth goes towards deep depression. Depression and Family Relationships: Ideas for Healing – Amy J. Marshall, Sandy Harper-Jaques, 2008 (sagepub.com)
Low income but high needs
The main reason for deep depression is that the needs of the young generation are high and they need money for this.
Young people do not have the money to meet their needs and there is no way that they can meet these expenses, then the young person will go into a deep depression.
Because young people have very low sources of income, then the chances of young people going into depression are greatly increased. 18694 (mit.edu)
Social media and the younger generation
Social media has brought the whole world together and made every effort to improve the lives of human beings.
In a society that is developed and living a good life, similarly in a society that is financially weak, its members sit together in one place, which helps the youth of different societies to compare themselves with each other. As a result, some young people begin to feel inferior and suffer from deep depression. https://fgcu.digital.flvc.org/islandora/object/fgcu%3A30517/datastream/OBJ/view/The_Impact_of_Social_Media_on_Depression_in_18-34-Year-Olds_in_the_United_States.pdf
No way forward
As far as young people are concerned, they have a lot of energy and every young person wants to do something and try his best. But if a young person gets stuck in a situation where there is no way out, he still goes into a deep depression.
Lack of mentor

Food and lifestyle
Things are changing over time and with the passage of time the diet and its methods are also changing. Similarly, the way of life is also changing and the youth are particularly affected.
Young people spend less time with nature and more attention to technology. Doing so changes their sleep and waking hours, as well as slows down the diet that is used to support the digestive system.
It is slowly disappearing. That is, people, especially young people, pay more attention to spicy and ready-made or prepared food. Instead of natural or organic food.
It is a recurring hobby of the young generation that they prefer cooked or packed food.
This is because of the fact that there are many online apps that provide ready-made food to your home.
This literally means that young people are doing this to avoid the hassle of cooking and on the other hand to have a delicious meal.
Sometimes, it is okay to do this but if it is made a habit then young people get various digestive diseases and if these diseases go on for a long time then the situation is chronic like the above explained and if the diseases are not cured then young people go into a deep depression.
On the other hand, when young people want to normalize and correct their habits, the time has passed and only worries remain. https://www.scielo.br/j/rpc/a/TkSWVDwBDGRKBNNW9TsdxBL/?lang=en&format=pdf
