The mental health field in the Middle East still has a long way to go to catch up to the West. This is unfortunate since there are a relatively large number of individuals suffering from depression in the Mideast (Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Kuwait, Jordan, Turkey, Israel, Lebanon, UAB Emirates –specially Abu Dabi and Dubai–, and Yemen). Each year, an estimated 201,000 disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) are lost from depression in the region. One DALY is defined as a year of life potentially lost either by premature death or disability.
The Impact of Depression in Mideast
Sympthoms of depression affect our daily life, and they can be classified by moderate, moderately severe and severe depression. The rates of each class depend basicaly on employment and place of residence. Even though depression affects almost 50% of patients at some extent, researchs stand that females and those with higher education were more likely to be depressed.
