This paper develops a framework around the history of major depressive disorder. It examines the history and theories of this disease, also known as unipolar disorder. It develops a theory of the implications for clients, client's families, employers and counsellors to create an understanding of the disorder, to better understand the physiological responses and psychosocial consequences of this mental health issue. It examines the impact of depression and demonstrates the necessity of identifying and treating it early. The conclusion examines ideas for further research and the impact of technology on this field including research in the areas of cognitive therapy, technology and early identification.
