Abstract

One in ten South Africans will be diagnosed with major depressive disorder (MDD) at some point in their lives. MDD is a potentially disabling condition that affects many spheres of an individual's life and leads to marked social and occupational dysfunction.

It covers aspects of diagnosis, co-morbidity, pharmacology and special patient groups.
