A recent study done by the Oregon Research Institute looked at the course of major depressive disorder (MDD) through four life stages.
They wanted to determine how MDD manifested during the four time periods. The research subjects were 816 individuals participating in the Oregon Adolescent Depression Project.
The study was done with questionnaires as well as assessment interviews by trained and supervised mental health workers with degrees in related disciplines.
MDD recovery: a person having eight or more consecutive weeks with no symptoms, or minor symptoms.
MDD recurrence: a person who meets all of the criteria for MDD after a period of recovery.
