Major Depression in the Population

A Public Health Approach

Public Mental Health is the application of the principles of medicine and social science to prevent the occurrence of mental and behavioral disorders and to promote mental health of the population. This course illustrates the principles of public health applied to depressive disorder, including principles of epidemiology, transcultural psychiatry, health services research, and prevention. It is predicted that by 2020 depressive disorder will be the most important cause of disease burden in the entire world! Every human being suffers from feeling depressed at some point or other, but only about one fifth of the population will experience an episode of depressive disorder over the course of their lives. This course illuminates the public health approach to disease, and the particular complexities of applying this approach to mental disorders, using depression as the exemplar.

This course encouraged me to think critically about mental health, specifically major depression from a public health perspective.

I really hope to publish a paper on Maternal mental health someday.

Being from Montana I feel that everyone should learn about depression, how to combat it and how to recognize it.

Got more info about depression globally .

Even so, the materials contained within each week do have some depth and are a perfect starting point for people who would like to learn more about depression.
