There has been a dramatic increase in depression diagnosis over the past 50 years, in industrialized cultures. Why would depression be on the rise? The answer to this question remains largely a mystery and few psychologists have tackled it, so feel free to propose some of your own arguments. A major concern for psychologists today is the increase in depression diagnosis over the past fifty years. Despite their advantages in technology and healthcare, industrialized countries are experiencing a large increase in the diagnosis of depression. While the cause for this increase is relatively unknown, I propose that there is a direct relationship between the increase of depression and the increase of globalization over the last fifty years. Globalization refers to the increase in global connectivity. Everyday it is becoming easier to connect people from all over the world. The integration of nations concerns the economic, social, technological, cultural, political, and ecological spheres of influence. In essence, globalization is making our world more and more like one unitary nation. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, globalization is the “process by which the experience of everyday life . .. is becoming standardized around the world.”
