Although there is no “cure” for mood disorders, getting treatment for your mood disorder can drastically improve your quality of life and your ability to manage symptoms of mood disorders. Delaying treatment can worsen your mood disorder and make it more difficult to treat.

Mood disorders such as depression and bipolar disorder are highly heritable. Having an immediate family member with a mood disorder increases the risk of developing a mood disorder. However, both genetic and environmental factors play a role in the development of mood disorders.

The onset of mood disorders can occur at any point during someone’s lifetime. However, they most commonly begin during adolescence and young adulthood, though they can also have onset later in the lifespan and often co-occurring with cognitive impairments.

There are several risk factors that increase the possibility of being affected by a mood disorder. Those with a family history of mood disorders are more likely to experience a mood disorder throughout their lifespan due to both genetic and environmental factors. In addition, those who have experienced traumatic life events such as abuse are at a higher risk of being affected by a mood disorder.

Those with a family history of mood disorders are more likely to experience a mood disorder throughout their span due to a combination of both genetic and environmental factors.
