How Common Is Depression?:-

How common is depression?

As indicated, depression is, sadly, very common. If we look at what is called major depression, the figures are:

In Women's:-
  • 4-10 and 10-26 percent
In Men's:-
  • 2-3.5 and 5-12 percent

The figures are even higher in Some communities (e.g, with poverty). Moreover problenms such as eating disorders, drug and alcohol problems and aggressiveness can also be linked to depression, and recede as depression is treated.

New research also indicates that rates of and risks for depression have been steadily increasing throughout the twentieth century, but the reason for this are unclear .

Socio_economic changes , the fragmentation of families and communities, the loss of hope in the younger generation especially the unemployed and increasing levels of expectations may all be implicated.

In general, then , there are many forms of depression, in fact so many that the term itself is not so helpful. But it is important to recognize that not all depressions are the same and they can vary greatly in severity and duration.

    This is a very important question and critical observation. It inspires the thought that we should always try to be magnanimous and tolerant in our ways because we cannot always tell what others are struggling with. Depression is a very serious issue — I will definitely be looking out for the continuation ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™‚.
