Depression goes beyond the normal ups and downs of life. Sufferers of depression experience days, months and years of extreme lows that include a disinterest in life. Although the exact cause of depression is unknown, genetic and environmental factors are thought to play a role in the development of depression. New research suggests that teenagers who associate themselves with the gothic subculture have a higher risk of developing depression.

The findings, which were published in The Lancet, reveal 15-year-old teenagers who assimilate with Goths are more likely to suffer depression and partake in self-harm by the age of 18.
