It explores books and journals where the studies have already been conducted to support the argument. This study argues that social class can depress people of any age. It also argues that even a child could be depressed by social class, or by comparing himself with other children who belong to a better class than himself and this knowledge is capable of depressing the child even at a tender age. Study also argues that even older people can be depressed due to lack of freedom in care homes or from deprivation of their own surroundings.
Generations of epidemiologists have tried to find out the association between socio-economic states and mental depression and that the social class of the person, combined or not combined with economics of life is definitely a causative factor. Depression is one of the most prevalent psychological disorders today in all developed countries. Somehow developing and underdeveloped countries do not have many people who are victims of depression, perhaps due to their being engaged otherwise. There could be many factors like interpersonal relationships, emotional problems, conflicts within the family or located in the society, or there could be gender problems existing in almost all the spheres. Social class seem to be one such aspect that might encourage a depression in the minds of the deprived.
Mental depression is the most common mental illness and mainly people from advanced countries are prone to it. Comparatively, developing and under developed countries are not highly prone to depression, perhaps one of the causes being the people from developing countries interact with other people in the community much more than the developed countries' people do. Conversation and sharing the problems never fails to create a group mentality in the society and this means that people with high interaction are not very prone to depression. People who are lonely, mainly the city dwellers, become easy victims to depression, as depression rules loneliness. More individualistic the society becomes, people are becoming more and more introverts and urban societies are showing the strain of introverted and lonely societies. Any issues, including that of social class usually get discussed with similar members of society and somehow it becomes a shared burden in the rural societies. But not so with the urban community, where people tend to live like islands without discussion or complaining. Hence, there are many issues that lead to depression and the social class and surroundings of the person are such issues.
