Depression by the Numbers

2015-0307 Depression

Recently, I was asked to share a post about the relationship between Traumatic Brain Injury and Depression. I knew what I wanted to say, but I also knew the topic required several posts. This is the first post in the series. Thankfully, Healthline.com already wrote the first part for me. This post answers the following questions:

  • What is depression?
  • How many people experience┬ádepression?
  • Who are the people mostly likely to have depression?

Please note: The following data does not appear to include statistics about the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder experienced by military personnel. Furthermore, the statistics reported by Healthline.com may be different than those reported by other companies.
