75% of low grade depression will result in full blown depression and 9-16 times the risk of suicide (Article)
'Almost depression' is not a mental disorder, but a 'low mood.'
"People who are almost depressed report a number of issues, including lower job satisfaction, lower satisfaction with their marriage and other personal relationships, more anxiety issues, less control over their lives and lower overall well-being than people who do not fall into the almost depressed range."
The author states that 75% of low grade depression will result in full blown depression, and those who are depressed have 4 times the risk of heart disease and 9-16 times the risk of suicide.
