How Common is Depression?
This picture shows the rates of depression worldwide. The redder the colour, the higher the rates of depression in that country.

This picture is based on a study published recently in the journal PLOS Medicine. In this study, they found depression to be the second leading cause of disability globally, with slightly more than 4 percent of the world diagnosed with it.

However, due to stigmatisation and taboo, many with depression still do not step forward for treatment and suffer silently. If you or your family suffer from symptoms of depression, seek treatment now. Remember, early intervention brings about the best outcome.
