While major depressive disorder can develop at any age, the median age at onset is 32.5. It is more prevalent in women than in men.  Over 80% of the people have symptoms of clinical depression do not receive any specific treatment for their depression. The number of patients diagnosed with depression increases by approximately 20% per year. Depression covers a wide range of human, emotional, and clinical states. As a normal mood, depression is ubiquitous in human existence. Depression is a serious illness that affects a person's thoughts, mood, body and ability to function in everyday life. Major depression often retreats only after patients have tried multiple drugs, and a large minority still has disabling symptoms even after using many medications, a landmark study suggests. About 7% of adults suffer from major depression in any given year, and they typically wait about eight years before seeking treatment, according to a federal survey.
