depression

If I have depression caused by circumstances, would that cause a chemical imbalance or does a chemical imbalance cause depression? If depression caused by circumstances DOESN'T cause a chemical imbalance, would antidepressants work, as antidepressants (the ones that I know of) treat the part of the brain that is chemically inbalanced?

Re: depression

No scientific evidence exists to support the chemical imbalance theory. A significant number of findings cast doubt on that.
