Major depressive disorder (MDD) is a significant mental health problem that disrupts a person’s mood and affects his psychosocial and occupational functioning. It is often under-recognised and 30-50% of MDD cases in primary care and medical settings are not detected. Suicide occurs in up to 15% of hospitalised patients with severe MDD.
