Abstract

Globally, depression has been identified as the leading cause of poor health and disability, with more than 300 million people living with the mental disorder. Owing to the alarming estimates and its ever-growing incidence, it is high time that stakeholders from different nations should re-visit their earlier strategies to improve the mental wellbeing of the general population and give due attention to improve the existing scenario. In-fact, the World Health Organization has started a campaign to cover people with depression across the world so that they not only seek, but even receive the required help. To conclude, failure to immediately act will prove costly for the stakeholders. Thus, there is an extensive need to deliver proper care and psychosocial support to all the people with mental disorders, and improve the quality of life of millions of people.
