I believe hopelessness leads to depression. Hopelessness comes as result of the absence of purpose. The presence of purpose is the connecting of each of us one to another in a way whereby we see the value and seek the benefit of putting others and their needs ahead of ours. As we have become more self-serving , we are in constant pursuit of gratification that is never fulfilled except fleetingly. That creates hopelessness, despair, confusion and ultimately, depression. I said in my earlier post, look around, it's pretty obvious.
I may be completely out in left field on this but if we could get people to stop being so self-absorbed, they would be less depression.
