Environmental factors mostly refer to the conditions in which you live. For instance, if you grew up in an abusive home, you are more likely to develop depression than someone who did not.
If you are living in poverty, you are also more likely to develop depression. Any ongoing condition of your life, that makes it more difficult than the average person’s life, will make you slightly more prone to developing depression.
Other environmental factors that can make you susceptible to depression include: living in isolation, working a stressful job, disconnections within your family, ongoing relationship problems, and housing insecurity.
common in people who already have a genetic predisposition towards OCD.
