Minnesota shows almost highest rates of depression in US

Whereas, North Dakota has the depression rate of 5%, which is similar to 20 other states of United States. Approximately nine million commercially insured people in the U.S. suffer from major depression, the report indicated.

According to the recent report from the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association that analysed about 41 million American insurers, the depression rate has risen by 33% in the past five years from 2013 to2017.

Teenagers and millennial have the fastest growth in the diagnosis rates of up 47% and 63%, respectively. Sr. The Midwest and Northeast, for example, have been hit pretty hard with ME and Minnesota experiencing rises of around 6 percent, while Hawaii sees the lowest rise nationally, of just 2 percent. The steady climb in the rate of depression needs to be tackled in ways that deal with the root cause, rather than exclusively the symptoms. Hawaii is recorded at lowest with 2%. Compared to those not diagnosed with major depression, people diagnosed with major depression are almost 30 percent less healthy, representing almost 10 years of life lost for men and women. The signs of depression involve many factors related to thoughts, feelings, behaviour and physical body. Every state except Hawaii experienced rising diagnosis rates of depression over the period of the study.

"We've suspected that there's a problem here, we've seen correlational studies, but this shows us that teens using their phone late at night leads to disrupted sleep which leads to increased depression, emotional fragility and sometimes acting out", psychologist Lisa Damour said.

Researchers examined the incidence of major depression using data from the BCBS Health Index, which quantifies how diseases and conditions impact longevity and quality of life.

According to World Health Organisation, more than 300 million people suffer from depression worldwide. However, the report warns it can not be determined which came first: the major depression or the other serious health condition (s) and whether one leads to another.

Our understanding of mental health has come on a lot since even just a few decades ago, making doctors much better at reading the signals and symptoms to deduce that someone might be suffering from depression.
