Greater prevention would reduce the incidence of depression by 21%

New report: A sustainable approach to depression

"In 2030, depression will be the leading cause of disease burden in high-income countries"

"...policy response to depression has, so far, been insufficient."

"Solutions should not be limited to the clinical setting: we need an integrated, comprehensive response to depression, which tackles its clinical and social causes; engages young people and other vulnerable groups; and addresses the impact of depression across the home, school and workplace.

This report aims to identify key factors that will ensure programmes for depression are sustainable and have a lasting impact"

"Lesson 1: Incorporate prevention into all services"
