ABSTRACT

Depression is very common disorder in our society. It is a negative aspect of well-being. In 2002, depression accounted for 4.5% of the worldwide total burden of disease (in terms of disability-adjusted life years). World Health Organization’s World Mental Health Survey Initiative has said that India has the highest rate of major depression in the world in 2011. Indians are among the world most depressed individuals. According to a World Health Organization-sponsored study, while around 9% of people in India reported having an extended period of depression within their lifetime, nearly 36% suffered from what is called Major Depressive Episode, WHO’s World Health Survey (ICD-10).
