Think of it the other way around. People listen to music because they are depressed, music does not cause depression, it is simply a common form of coping.

Well, it kind of makes sense. If you were depressed you would be listening to music to help cope with anxiety, stress, and depression. So it kind of makes sense. I still get the feeling their claims have little to no factual basis.

it's makes sense. "likely to BE depressed" music "HELPS the mind and body cope with stress"

I believe listening to a lot of music would be a symptom not a cause of depression.

People who obsess over these ******** moneytized twitter accounts are 8.3 more times likely to be depressed b/c they are depressing, saying that everything you're doing is wrong.

uberfacts is a hype-style twitter account that posts some cool, true facts and then the other 85% are complete ********, just to make people go "WOW" and click that retweet button. Then they post ad links to make themselves money.

that's because depression and stress are sort of on opposite sides of the emotional spectrum. It's not quite so black and white, but that's the gist of it.

correlation =/= causation

That said, music can be both the cause of and solution to problems, so it can go both ways, but it's generally more helpful even if it does make you feel more depressed for the moment.

People have got to start realizing that when it isn't so extreme that it's harmful to you, depression is a useful and often necessary human function. It's your body and feelings telling you that you've got a lot of **** to work out and that you should think hard about your problems rather than ignoring them, in the hopes that eventually you'll solve them.

In the same way, generally music is helpful even if you're depressed and listening to depressing music, because that's generally something you need to get through and past, not something to ignore or cover over. So just because music makes you more depressed doesn't mean it isn't still good for you emotionally and psychologically most of the time.
