hello, attached is the complete paper, and its outline. in case of any issue, kindly let me know
Depression remains a major health concern both in the third world, as well as in the
developed countries. In developed countries, for instance, about 12-32% of the population
exhibit anxiety symptoms or depression (Rebar et al., 1). In the developing countries, the
situation is not better, and most people are suffering from this condition are not given any help,
either due to lack of enough resources or due to the stereotypes against mental health victims.
With the growth of social media, there have been numerous attempts by healthcare organizations
to sensitize people about this condition. Sadly, stereotypes associated with mental health remains
a key hindrance to solving issues surrounding depression. As of now, no single approach can
help treat depression on its own, and as such, there is a need to combine various approaches in
addressing this health menace.
Over the last decade, cases of depression have increased significantly, and there seems to
be no solution to this problem as of now. Several factors have made it difficult to address this
challenge, one of them being; lack of a clear definition for a depression, and presence of stigma
against depression patient ((Yokoya et al., 203). Currently, scholars and mental health
practitioners are involved in a debate, on how to effectively define depression, and which
conditions can be treated as depression. Lack of a clear definition of depression has delayed
efforts to collectively create a solution to end this menace. Stereotypes associated with mental
disorders have also made it difficult to find a solution to address depression. For instance, in
most third world countries, mental health patients are stereotyped, hence making it difficult for
them to step out and seek help.
Even with advancements in technology, depression remains a serious health concern both
in developed, as well as in the developing countries. In the next decade, cases of depression are
projected to rise significantly if nothing is done to address this menace. According to Kerner, &
Prudic, by 2030, it is projected that Unipolar depression will be among the three leading causes
of disease burden in the society, alongside HIV AIDs, and ischemic heart disease (3). In
developed nations such as the United States and Canada, Unipolar depression is projected to
surpass HIV AIDS, and become the leading cause of disease burden by the end of 2030. As such,
there is a need to effectively reduce depression, or at least find a formidable solution that will
help prevent a catastrophe, that awaits us in the next few years.
Studies show that several strategies are effective in reducing depression as well as
