By 2020, depression would be the second leading cause of disease in the world!
How to fight depressive disorders?
One (1) person out of ten (10), presents depressive symptoms (WHO, 2001). In 2000, depression was considered as a first cause of disability worldwide by the World Health Organization. The disease of depression can cause harmful consequences for the person who is concerned as well as for his family. The economic impact of this problem can be measured by the cost of health care and lack or loss of productivity at work. According to WHO, around 2020, if the trend continues, the disease burden attributable to depression should increase and it would be ranked second after cardiovascular ischemic diseases. Depression affects almost all age groups, all social strata and the most tragic outcome remains suicide. In Canada, S. Patten and H. Juby (2008) reported that the disability’s days related to depression were estimated at $ 2.6 billion in 1998.
What are the main symptoms of this disease? How can they be recognized? What are the risk factors? What are the ways of preventing this disorder?
If you, or someone in your environment, have experienced these symptoms during two (2) consecutive weeks, you should see a mental health professional.
However, it is important to note that some depressed people will not experience all of these symptoms listed above. In addition, 50% of people who have had one episode are at risk of relapse (DSM-IV-TR, 2003).
