Shabnam Bahadur

India accounts for nearly 18% of the world population. It accounted for 15% of global DALYs attributable to mental, neurological and substance use disorders (31 million DALYs) with depression, accounting for 37% (11ยท5 million DALYs) in 2013.The burden of depression, in terms of DALYs, increased by 67% between 1990 and 2013. By 2025, DALYs attributable to depression are projected to rise by roughly 2.6 million (22.5%) due to population growth and ageing. As per NMHS (2015-16) in India, one in 20 (5.25%) people over 18 years of age have ever suffered (at least once in their lifetime) from depression amounting to a total of over 45 million persons with depression in 2015.
