Preface

World Health Organisation (W.H.O.) has defined he as "Physical, Mental and Social well-being". The me health of the individual plays a significant role in well-being of a person. There is a saying "A Healthy A has a Healthy Body."

During the past two decades, interest and research ir field of Mental Health and Mental Disorders have grown rapidly. A recent study conducted by W.H.O. has predicted that in terms of disease burden, by the year 2020 (that is in the next 20 years), Depressive disease will become the No. 2 disease in the world overriding diabetes, cancer, arthritis A study conducted in Mumbai in 1998 showed that 36 % (the cases attending general practitioners' clinic for var physical or somatic complaints were actually suffering from Depressive disease.

There are a lots of misconceptions, prejudices and biases against mental (psychological) diseases. Recent research clearly demonstrated the role of chemicals in the brain cells these diseases and established beyond doubt that the patients are not behaving, thinking and feeling in a particular manner purposely and that the symptoms are not under their control.

The new knowledge gained through scientific research needs to be spread to common man. This book is an attempt in this direction. It is an effort to present facts about the most commonly seen maental disease namely, “Depressive Disease”.

The information is useful not only for the patients and their family members but also for the common man. It is hoped that with the scientific information presented in this book, the misconceptions, prejudices as also the biases would be corrected and the disease, along the biases would be corrected and the disease, along with the suffering patients, would be understood better. This would help in early diagnosis and proper treatment of Depressive disease, thus reducing the suffering and disease burden to families and society at large.
