Trauma & Depression
Depression can be brought on as a protective response when we feel overwhelmed.
It can also be the thing that comes on after big feelings or anxiety.
Sometimes joy can feel unsafe, and depression can feel safer.
According to Polyvagal theory, depression is a basic biological defence strategy.
For those with trauma, depression is often a protective response (even though it may not feel so great).
