Feeling blue? Check out our depression checklist

Depression is a common illness globally, with more than 300 million people affected. Depression is different from usual mood fluctuations and short-lived emotional responses to challenges in everyday life. In Nigeria alone, over 1.5 million cases are reported every year. When left untreated to grow more intense and severe, depression may become a serious health condition. It can cause the affected person to suffer and that leads to poor function at work, at school and in their personal lives. At its worst, depression can lead to suicide and can affect people at any age. Although there are known, effective treatments for depression, fewer than half of those affected in the world (in many countries, fewer than 10%) receive such treatments. Barriers to effective care include a lack of resources, lack of trained health-care providers, and social stigma associated with mental disorders. In Nigeria especially, many cases of depression go unreported and untreated and this has contributed to the rapid rise in suicide rates over the last few years. Due to this, more awareness must be shed on depr...
