I still think that the majority of those that struggle with depression or other mental illness had something in their past-recent, early development, or adolescence-that contributed to the development of their mental illness. This belief comes form taking several psychology courses, discussions with psychology professors, discussions with therapists that have Ph.D.'s in clinical psychology, discussions with psychiatrists, discussions with friends, and personal observations. That said, I do think there are those few cases where depression or some other mental illness is mostly a result of a genetic predisposition.
