People previously thought that at first depression primarily spread in developed “Western” countries and the non-Euro-American did not suffer from depression. But by doing comparative studies of both the region and place it was thought that it had more to with the society of the people and the culture of the people where they were living, it had to do with those perception which are labeled as depressive disorder. Like for an example, India have a wide range of distress disorders which are categorized as depressive disorder, whereas in Japan, having an mental illness is not acceptable and few of them would admit having it.
As people might say at last without knowingly about the story that, India have a high depression rate than the rest of the world, or conversely saying that Japanese people rarely develop this disorder. By different influencing cultural context like country like U.S.A. its prevalence rate can be said b those, for example like the new settler people in U.S.A. its has lower depression rate than the people already staying in the country like those rich people.
Focusing on the role of people’s culture, ones perception and context encourage that cultural difference of a person of its culture and the nature of the society are linked to the presence of depression. Due to the aim between individualistic vs. collectivistic its difference come from those. In Western culture people are viewed as independent individual having freedom seeking for individual achievement and success. But in different culture family and society are considered more important than the individual. Some authors said that people who are thinking that togetherness of family or people does not encourage for praising of one self and does not cause one person to feel frustrated or let down if something is wrong done. In some culture like there are strong placed gender role in the family, the male is the head of the family and gives support to the members and the female is the house maker of the family, she is escorted by the male member of the family when she goes outside as woman were not allowed to leave outside. If in this case someone from this culture faces a social stress it might completely change the status in the family. For example if the husband dies his wife will not know to give fincial support to the family, whereas, if he wife passes away her husband might not know the daily chores of his house. Both of them might start to think of themselves worthless or useless. People from different culture from across the world they show various physical symptoms of depression by a person. For other different culture, depression symptoms are seen normal emotional happening in person’s particular life event. Some cultures still think that depression symptoms are problematic, but these symptoms does not make any sense to observers or clinicians from other cultures. For an instance like, patients may does not accept the treatment from clinicians which are actually the treatment to cure for the problem. For an example, a patient from China who have been seen by a doctor in U.S might not accept the saying that the patient have been suffering from the idea that, that biochemical imbalance is the cause of depressive symptoms in favor of Chinese traditional medicine concept of energy flow. Such kind of people or patient might consult to the best mental health professionals who are related to their own place or culture they are related to.
Seeking help for depression from the same cultural background of the doctor or counsellor can influence the treatment to depression of the patient. For example, the people who are not from Western country frequently use their own culture’s practitioner or treatment for treating illness and the western-trainers for curing the diseases. The depressed person or individual might not be ready to seek a practitioner or health care for depressive symptoms to get treated from it if a person’s emotional disturbance feeling are not considered as disease to be cured from. Depression is considered as more socially acceptable in the Western societies and people talking about depression is more common in Western country and are willing to help people to get rid it. Mental illness is considered as a disgrace in other culture. As a result, people and families considered mental illness as a disgrace or identifies as a crazy person. And other may think that or label depression as morally unacceptable and shameful thing.
People’s biological makeup are also influence by their cultural background. People from all around the world have different types or pattern of genes or DNA in their body and different types of disease from which they are vulnerable from. Such things from a person can make a difference in person’s mind or the way how they perform like some genetic differences can influence whether people fail to resist depression when stressed. Similarly as genetic background of people can also influence their response to antidepressant medication.
