Don't you think one of the main causes of depression and anxiety is delusional thinking?


I do understand what you are getting at but in most cases this is not true.

Delusional thinking may present as a symptom of clinical depression but it is certainly not the usual cause of depression. Depression may have a number of causes but delusional thinking is usually a symptom of depression rather than its cause.

Anxiety may be a symptom of a delusional disorder in some cases. There are so many possible causes of anxiety or panic attacks that it is impossible to narrow this down to one cause.

Depression and anxiety are usually caused by a cluster of pre-existing beliefs, history, emotions, thinking and many other factors. Trying to simplify these complex disorders is an impossible task and usually does a disservice to the patient/client.
