Summary

Mental health professionals estimate that approximately 1 in 10 Americans suffer from depression at some point in their lives. Depression is a disease that disrupts one's mood and sense of well-being. It can interfere with one's enjoyment of life, interactions with friends and family members, and ability to work. Severe depression can leave one despondent to the point of paralysis and hopelessness or even contribute to suicide. The disease takes an economic toll, as well, in costs for treatment and lost wages and productivity. Fortunately, most cases of depression can be successfully treated with medication and therapy.

The Encyclopedia of Depression is a concise, A-to-Z guide to covering everything readers need to understand the nature of this disease, recognize its signs and symptoms, and seek out treatment for themselves or a loved one. More than 80 in-depth articles examine all aspects of depression, including its causes, current research into the disease, treatment options, and related social issues.

Topics covered include:

  • Antidepressants
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Children and depression
  • Demographics of depression
  • Generalized anxiety disorder
  • Holiday depression
  • Myths and inaccuracies about depression
  • Refractory depression
  • Risk factors for depression
  • Substance abuse.
