DEPRESSION VS ANXIETY

#Depression and #anxiety are the two most common mental health conditions affecting the global population.

 

While depression is the single largest contributor to global #disability, anxiety stands as the 6th, according to the World Health Organization .

 

It says even though they both cost the global economy $1 trillion every year in lost #productivity, every dollar invested in their treatment can generate a return of $4 in terms of improved #wellbeing and increased #ability to work.

 

Some facts about this:

 

🔸 Over 300 million people in the world were estimated to suffer from depression in 2015 (4.4% of the world’s population).

 

🔸 Around 264 million people in the world suffered from anxiety disorders in 2015 (3.6%).

 

🔸 Both are more common among #females than males.

 

🔸 Africa and the Americas are the most affected regions.
