Abstract

Major depression is a common but still underdiagnosed and undertreated illness which, with its complications (suicide, secondary alcoholism, loss of productivity, increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality), is a major public health problem worldwide. Implementing the present pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatment strategies, major depression can be successfully treated resulting in a significant decline in suicide risk and the economic burden caused by untreated depression is much higher than the cost of treatment. In the present paper the authors also discuss the impact of the development of the Hungarian psychiatric care system in the past three decades and the 2008 recession on the changing national suicide rate. Like international data, Hungarian studies also show that more widespread and effective treatment of depression is the main component of the more than 50-percent decline of suicide mortality in Hungary during the last 30 years.
