2. Depression

Divorce frequently causes depression. People with a history of depression can contact their doctors and other health care providers for assistance. Medical professionals help people develop coping strategies and may recommend medication or other interventions. Almost everyone develops situational depression during a divorce, a natural reaction to grief and loss. Socialization and reaching out to friends and family can limit the intensity and duration of situational depression. Learning a new skill, spending time on new hobbies or existing interests, and exercise can also help.
