≪Organizer Abstract≫
Depression is among the most common and costly of mental health problems, with a lifetime prevalence rates of approximately 17%. According to the World Health Organization (2013), depression affects more than 350 million individuals worldwide. While efforts to understand and ameliorate the acute phase of depression continue to be critical, increased research is needed in the area of preventative interventions to further enhance our ability to help individuals who suffer from this devastating condition. In this regard, "an ounce of prevention [may be] worth a pound of cure." In this symposium, researchers will present recent data on preventative interventions for depression.
