PsychU Spotlight

Major Depressive Disorder

Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) is a brain disorder that affects how a person feels, thinks, and handles daily activities. Some of the most common symptoms of MDD include feelings of sadness, fatigue, and loss of interest, but each patient may have a unique experience as to types and severity of symptoms. In the United States, lifetime risk of MDD is nearly 2 in 10, with MDD affecting approximately 16.1 million American Adults in a given year. Given the prevalence of MDD, and our commitment to increasing available information in order to shift the trajectory of mental health care, PsychU shines its Monthly Spotlight on MDD for October.*
