How to Get Out of Depression
It’s been a rough year for depression sufferers worldwide.
The disease has surged in popularity, with some researchers predicting that by the end of 2020, there will be an estimated 5 million people in the world with the illness.
As the number of cases has risen, governments have stepped up efforts to treat and prevent depression.
Here’s how you can help the millions of people affected.

Researchers from the University of Maryland and the University at Albany used data from the National Epidemiologic Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions (NESARC) to examine how depression affects people’s everyday lives.
The study, which was published on Thursday in the journal PLoS Medicine, analyzed data from over 1.5 million individuals across the U, and found that depression affected more than 8.5 percent of the American population.
The researchers say that’s a substantial increase from a quarter-century ago, when it was less than 1 percent.
While the new study focused on depression in the U., researchers say they are also studying how depression impacts the rest of the world.
In addition to the U.-based data, they analyzed data for the past 20 years and found depression is now the leading cause of disability worldwide, accounting for nearly a quarter of all global disability.
The World Health Organization estimates that more than 1 billion people worldwide suffer from depression.
This study also shows that the burden of depression is on global health and in developing countries, and that these challenges will be exacerbated by climate change.
The authors note that in the past decade, there has been a “decrease in the number and severity of depression-related injuries,” which they say “may contribute to an increasing incidence of morbidity and mortality associated with the disorder.”
While the increase in suicides and homicides in the developed world may have contributed to this increase, the authors say this could be due to improved understanding of depression.
“Although the magnitude of this burden is significant, the relative contribution of individual factors to global mortality, disability, and COVID-19 burden is still uncertain,” they write.
The study suggests that the next step in this effort will be developing better ways to identify people with depression, which would make them more likely to seek help.
