Despite all the knowledge on depression, it is still unclear whether current literature covers all the psychosocial difficulties PSDs important for depressed patients. The aim of the present study was to identify the gaps in the recent literature concerning PSDs and their related variables. A comparative approach between a systematic literature review, a focus group, and individual interviews with depressed patients was used. Furthermore, the covered areas were very general and related to symptomatology. Regarding the related variables, literature focused on clinical variables and treatments above all but did not report that many psychosocial difficulties influence other PSDs. This study identified many existing research gaps in recent literature mainly in the area of related variables of PSDs.

Background: Despite the great burden of depression on sufferers and society, there is a lack of reliable information regarding the full range of psychosocial difficulties associated with depression and their related variables. This systematic review aimed to demonstrate the utility of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health ICF in describing the psychosocial difficulties that shape the lived experience of persons with depression. Quality of studies was also considered. Results: studies were included. Medication played a dual role as determinant of onset and change in some psychosocial areas, e. Limitations: The search was limited by year of publication and focused only on minor and major depression diagnoses: other depressive disorders were not included. Some underresearched, but relevant psychosocial areas could have not been analyzed.
Psychosocial features of depression: a systematic literature review
Metrics details. Multiple Sclerosis is a disease of the central nervous system involving a variety of debilitating physical, sensory, cognitive and emotional symptoms. This literature review evaluated the impact of psychological interventions on the physiological symptoms associated with the illness.
Psychological models can help to understand why many people suffering from major depression do not seek help. Observational studies investigating the associations between individual or contextual characteristics and professional help-seeking behaviour for emotional problems in adults formally diagnosed with major depression were included. The quality of the included studies was assessed, and factors associated with help-seeking behaviour were qualitatively synthesized. In total, 40 studies based on 26 datasets were included. Socio-demographic and need factors appeared to influence help-seeking behaviour.
