The recent tragic death of Robin Williams brought depression into the public eye. According to the World Health Organization (these bullet points taken directly from the WHO site):

  • 350 million people worldwide suffer from depression.Depression is a common mental disorder. Globally, more than 350 million people of all ages suffer from depression.

  • Depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide, and is a major contributor to the global burden of disease.

  • More women are affected by depression than men.

  • At its worst, depression can lead to suicide.

  • There are effective treatments for depression.

350 million people is a huge segment of the population – and the number is probably quite a bit larger, because there is still a stigma attached to depression and many people go undiagnosed. The social burden of depression (lost productivity, rising divorce rates, etc.) is on the rise globally, and it’s a very serious problem.
