Depressive disorders generally consist of major depressive disorder (MDD), dysthymia, and minor depression. Major depressive disorder is a broad and heterogeneous condition associated with a range of cognitive, behavioural, emotional, and physical symptoms. Central to major depressive disorder is low mood and/or loss of pleasure in most activities.

Approximately 18.8 million American adults, or about 9.5 percent of the U.S. population age 18 and older in a given year, have a depressive disorder. Depression affects all people regardless of age, geographic location, demographic or social position. Depressive disorders are appearing earlier in life with the average age of onset 50 years ago being 29 whereas recent statistics indicate it at just 14.5yrs in today's society. The severity of the disorder may vary from mild to severe depending on both the number of symptoms and the degree of functional impairment. In severe cases, psychotic symptoms such as hallucination or delusion may be present. Major depressive disorder often has a remitting and relapsing course, and symptoms may persist between episodes. The rate of major depressive disorder in women is twice as high as in men. The routine use of antidepressants to treat mild major depressive disorder is not recommended except for those who have a past history of moderate or severe major depressive disorder or who have mild major depressive disorder that persists after other interventions.

A recent study sponsored by the World Health Organization and the World Bank found unipolar major depression to be the leading cause of disability in the United States. Women between the ages of 25-44 are most often affected by depression with a major cause of depression in women being the inability to express or handle Anger. More than a third of the Europe population suffers from some sort of a mental disorder each year. The London School of Economics estimated the total loss of output due to depression and chronic anxiety in the UK at some 12 billion pounds a year.

Depressive disorder is a mental disorder that involves the brain and is characterized by a pervasive and persistent low mood, feelings of guilt and poor concentration. Major depressive disorder (MDD) is also called as clinical depression, unipolar depression or recurrent depression. It is a type of disabling condition that that adversely affects a person's family, work or school life, sleeping and eating habits, and general health. Depression can result into complications like insomnia, excessive sleeping, fatigue, loss of energy, pains. People with depressive disorders have shorter life expectancies than those without depression because of their greater susceptibility to medical illnesses and suicide. Depression can be caused by damage to the cerebellum as is seen in cerebellar cognitive affective syndrome. Infectious diseases and neurological conditions like addison’s disease, lyme disease, multiple sclerosis, chronic pain, stroke, cancer are the different types of depressive disorders. Life events such as childbirth, menopause, financial difficulties, job problems, loss of a loved one, natural disasters, social isolation, relationship troubles etc can be the reason of depressive disorders. Substance-induced mood disorder resembling major depression is caused due to long-term drug use or drug abuse and also due to to withdrawal from certain sedative and hypnotic drugs.When the disorder is mild, it can be treated without medicines but when it is moderate or severe people may need medication for treatment. People are treated with antidepressant medication and in many cases also require counseling, cognitive behavioral therapy, talk therapy.

Depression and Anxiety disorders are caused due to abnormal variations in the mood of a person. Studies have reported that 90% of patients with anxiety disorders develop Depression.
