Since 2019, depression in Austria has nearly doubled. Of course, this can be attributed to the pandemic lockdown, but work still needs to be done to decrease these numbers. With extreme isolation and citizens losing their family members and friends to COVID, it was a given that depression would be on the rise. However, previous studies have shown that only 50% of the population with mental disorders are likely to seek professional help. This is due to the stigma that still surrounds mental health. Patients have a hard time confiding in a doctor, and there is a general lack of understanding regarding how mental health problems should be cared for.
