If you would like to know which are the most depressed countries in the world 2017, read Insider Monkey’s latest article about it. The one thing that older generations had, and we are now deprived of, is peace. Peace of mind no longer exists. We barely finish one thing before we move onto another. And it is never enough. We believe we have goals and that we’re going somewhere, but in the end, all we manage to accomplish is running around in circles.

This is a global phenomenon, and not restricted to a few countries or even continents. Europe, which is considered to be one of the most advanced continents in the world, has also seen a lot of depression in recent years. According to recent statistics, topping the list of most depressed countries in Europe is Ukraine.

Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three most depressed countries in the world 2017 from their list.

The first one is Sudan.Many African countries make the list of the most depressed countries in the world in 2017, mainly due to a poor standard of living. Sudan is no exception to this concept, with a large section of the population barely able to make ends meet. Unless there is a sharp improvement in the economy of Sudan, depression will continue to rise significantly.The second country on our list should be Egypt. Egypt was the center of a successful revolution back in 2011, and it seemed to herald in the dawn of a new era. However, that is not exactly how things panned out.  In Egypt, depression is still not taken seriously, though its younger generation is fighting to end this stigma and for all. At last, but not least, we are mentioning Afghanistan. Ever since the Taliban took power, Afghanistan has been in a downward spiral from which there seems to be no escape. Contrary to popular belief, the Taliban didn’t just spring up one beautiful day. They were armed by the United States and Pakistan to counter the growing presence of the then Soviet Union in the area. However, the Taliban turned out to be disobedient (which must have been a huge surprise for those arming people with extremist ideologies), and Afghanistan is yet to recover.
