15 Unhappiest, Most Depressing and Saddest Countries in the World

This article will bring you to the list of the unhappiest, most depressing and saddest countries in the world. Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about it giving you some edifying information. It’s sad to know that there are countries where people feel depressed and antidepressants are on the rise year by year. When checking insider Monkey’s list I found that there are both developed and undeveloped countries in the compilation as well. For example you can find both Germany and Ethiopia in their list. Why do these nations feel depressed? What’s the problem with the people in Germany for example? It’s a welfare state, where people have good cars, they can afford to go on holiday twice a year, they possess all the conveniences in their lives and homes… yet there are 4,1 million people who struggle with depression… why? You will get to know lots of things if you follow the list with us.

Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of the  unhappiest, most depressing and saddest countries in the world from their list.

The first one is Brazil, it comes in second of the United States with 11.5 million depression cases. Much of it is due to the effects of violence and social inequality across the country. The government wants their Psychosocial Community Centers to be utilized. However, other areas lack the said center, and many people can’t access or enjoy this kind of benefit. The second country on our list for now is Germany. Germany is among the top 20 happiest countries, yet it is also among the countries with high depression cases with more than 4.1 million cases. Antidepressants are on the rise in this country. However, it is a type of medication that needs a prescription, and even though it is known as safe, there are still possibilities of side effects. At last, but not least let’s see the numbers of China! College Students are already showing signs of depression in China, the number 10 0n our list of unhappiest, most depressing and saddest countries in the world. Kids as young as primary and middle school age are already suffering from various mental illnesses. China’s depression case is approximately 54.8 million. The suicide cases are possibly connected with the depression people are going through, but researchers do not directly point to this as the reason.
