Map of Depression across the world

Depression World Wide


Depression is a World Wide Phenomenon

The map above shows incidence of depression world wide.

Only the countries that had available statistics are included.


121 million people is an alarming number.

It is estimated that in the UK about 15% of the population are clinically depressed.

In the US, one in every four Americans (25%) has a mental health disorder such as depression or anxiety.  This could be in fact much higher, because many people with depression do not seek professional help.

The World Health Organization (WHO) predicts that depression will be the second leading cause of death by 2020.

You are invited to provide reliable statistics from countries where the incidence of depression is not shown on the above map.
