Depression is a common disorder, estimated to affect approximately 350 million people worldwide. Depression is costly and one of the main sources of personal suffering and despite available effective treatments depression unfortunately remains often untreated or patients do not respond to conventional treatment approaches. Depression affects people in all communities across the world and is the leading cause of disability worldwide in terms of total years lost. Research has shown that depression is a major factor in attempted/completed suicide.
Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) affects approximately 5.7% of the population and is the most common form of anxiety disorder found in the primary care setting. If left untreated, GAD is associated with increased societal costs and can substantially reduce the quality of life of the individual patient.
There are different conventional approaches in treatment of mood and anxiety disorders, mainly pharmacological treatment and psychotherapy. Although patients benefit from these methods, there are many people who are sufficiently responding to these treatments.
In this session the speakers will talk about different emerging treatments and approaches for mood and anxiety disorders.
