    wondering why I hear that depression and ocd are caused by chemical unbalance, yet there is no scientific proof to back this up.

    What else do you want it to be? Every feeling or thought is a chemical reaction in your brain, so it is reasonable to assume that a depression is a chemical unbalance.

    Unbalance because a depression isn't considered as a "normal state". Same thing for OCD.

  15. Some want to put that imbalance, with its own unknown causes, as the trigger for some depression.

    Others see the imbalance itself as sort of "exhaust fumes" from the brain processes/behaviors which are diagnosed as depression. In other words, we see imbalances in brain chemicals in depressed people, but those chemical imbalances didn't cause it, they themselves are caused by depression.

    In order to believe the latter theory, we have to view outside traumas or even damage as the cause of some depression, which then gives rise to the chemical imbalances.
