10 Factors behind the
Rising Incidence of Depression
Research suggests that the global prevalence of mental illness among young adults has reached a record high in the past decade. Millennials have been consistently found to be the most susceptible to anxiety disorders and depression, particularly in the workplace.
Before going any further, it's important to define and agree on what depression is and what it is not. Sadness and depression are often used interchangeably but are very different things. Rejection at an interview for a coveted job or the absence of a loved one can trigger transient lows, but these do not always warrant serious concern. If a person, however, observes a considerable loss of interest in the activities that they normally enjoy and a significant change in their appetite and sleep habits, depression could be the underlying cause. It is usually not possible to identify a single, underlying cause for depression. However, there are multiple contributing factors, and in the past few years, some of these factors have become more prevalent, increasing the risks of depression. In this post, I will discuss 10 of them.
