How many people actually are able to conquer depression? Does anyone know the statistics on this? This is something I have been wondering.
The World Health Organization (WHO), in the most up-to-date survey of its kind from 2000, reported that depression is the fourth most burdensome disease in the world, with more than 120 million people suffering from it worldwide. It's expected that by 2020 it will be the leading global disease burden. In the United States alone, estimates for those diagnosed with the disease range from 17 to 21 million people a year or roughly 10 percent of the country, though WHO reports that rates can vary by region, with as little as 5 percent of South and East Asians suffering from depression, and as many as 25 percent of the population suffering from it in Eastern European and former Soviet countries like Hungary, Belarus, Latvia, Lithuania and Finland.

It's a well known thing that depression is not good thing for health and to come out from this situation yoga and meditation is
best way to reduce it.
Depression is a medical illness that affects both the mind and body; it affects how you feel, think and behave. Depression is more than just a bout of the blues: it is a chronic illness that usually requires long-term treatment.
Depression is more than simply feeling unhappy or fed up for a few days.
Medicine is not the solution to get out of it, it just needed to be relax and positive thinking towards life.
Or the best way get busy in some other work you like so the mind will not stuck to depression.
