Rates of Major Depression Up Among US Insured, Esp. Youth

At least we're talking about

Minnesota has almost the highest rates of major depression in the country, according to a new report from Blue Cross Blue Shield of America. The rates of diagnosis of major depression are higher for women than men (6 and nearly 3 percent, respectively).

According to the recent report from the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association that analysed about 41 million American insurers, the depression rate has risen by 33% in the past five years from 2013 to2017. The steady climb in the rate of depression needs to be tackled in ways that deal with the root cause, rather than exclusively the symptoms.

The report also discovered a wide variety related to geographic differences in the diagnosis of major depression.

Teenagers and millennial have the fastest growth in the diagnosis rates of up 47% and 63%, respectively. Sr. The lowest was Hawaii at two percent.

Women were found to be diagnosed at twice the rate of men.

According to the report, major depression is the second most impactful condition on overall health for commercially insured Americans; the diagnosis rate is 4.4 percent, with more than nine million commercially insured Americans affected.

He said its policy was now "to concentrate all efforts into economic progress", but stressed that this had nothing to do with global sanctions imposed on the country.

For the third year in a row, major depression is on the rise in the United States.

A 2017 study published in the journal Child Development found nighttime usage of a cellphone can increase anxiety and depression in teenagers and reduce self-esteem.

"Even if they're having a great time, even if they're being super appropriate on their phone, if the phone is getting in the way of sleep they need, it still causes harm", Damour said.

It is also thought that as more prominent people and celebrities openly talk about the battles that they have been fighting, the stigma surrounding mental health issues and depression is - slowly - being eroded. Among the 9 million U.S. individuals in 2016 detected with major depression, only 15% were detected with the condition of depression alone.

If you think you may be suffering from depression, speak to your doctor.

However, while we might be a bit more open about discussing depression, and medical practitioners better at spotting the signs, the actual treatment of people with mental health problems has remained stationary for quite a while now.
