Two-thirds of U.S. adults who screen positive for depression go untreated.
When almost 50,000 adults completed detailed health questionnaires, 8% screened positive for depression. Only 29% of those who screened positive received any kind of treatment within the next year. Yet almost 80% of those with untreated depression had seen a medical profession with a year.
