Depression is one of the leading causes of disability in persons 15 years and older. It affects individuals, but can impact families, businesses, and society. The US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends that all adults be screened for depression because If only those showing symptoms were screened a significant proportion of individuals who do not display or disclose symptoms would be missed.
