    Preventing depression: a global priority
  • Author: Cuijpers, Pim ; Beekman, Aartjan T F ; Reynolds, Charles F
  • Description: More than half of those with depression develop a recurrent or chronic disorder after a first depressive episode and are likely to spend more than 20% of their lifetime in a depressed condition. With a 12-month prevalence rate of more than 5% in most high-, middle-, and low-income countries and its occurrence at almost any age, depression generates substantial loss of quality of life and personal morbidity and despair. But it also leads to considerable additional damage through biological sequelae and maladaptive illness behaviors, thus increasing risk of cardiovascular disease, dementing illnesses, and early death while amplifying disability, complications, and health services use in those with coexisting chronic illnesses. Here, Cuijpers et al explore research priorities for prevention of depression.
