the problems defining treatment resistance & other depression stats: @dchristmas 2.1.1-6 Dec06

the problems defining treatment resistance & other depression stats: @dchristmas 2.1.1-6 Dec06 (7 February 2016)

2.1.1-6: Major depressive disorder (MDD); pages 5-17

The Economic Burden.  The Natural Course.  Defining Treatment-Refractory/Chronic. The Validity of Staging Methods.  Defining Outcomes.  Treating MDD Effectively.  

It's been 8 months since my last blog post about Dr David Christmas's NMD thesis but today I grasped the nettle and got down to looking through the Background section on major depression.  Capturing some quotes in screenshots that stood out for me, among the stats and charts.

disability comparisons with diabetes, arthritis etc
employability impairments
(I've been resistant to psychiatric treatment for over 4 decades ...)
professions suspicious about NMD writings
significant gaps in knowledge re effective management
