Depressed literally means lower than previously. It is flattened down state by pressing from above. It is a form of the word depression. This word is used in various context but the most common usage is when it is used to describe a person who is in very low spirits and unhappy. When a person is feeling disheartened and downcast due to some reason then he is said to be depressed. In medical terms depression is a state of chronic sadness and a feeling of worthlessness. A person who is going through this phenomenon is said to be depressed. It is considered as a psychological disorder and should be treated on time to avid further problems.

But this term is also used to denote other things like depressed mortgage; a financial term, and is used in phrases like "the market is depressed and "the rates are 'depressed" which is used in an entirely different context.

It might not be because of something that happend to you (example : A death or moving far away) sometimes its just in your genes.
