Incidence of Depression

Unipolar depression, which is a major depressive episode that occurs without a manic phase, is twice as common in women than men. It is the most common mental health problem for women. Depressive disorders account for nearly 41.9% of disability caused by neuropsychiatric disorders. Physicians are more likely to diagnose depression in women than in men, even when they have identical symptoms and similar scores on standardized tests as their male counterparts.
