Depression - Recurrence
Doctor Jon Lieberman explains that if an individual has had a depressive episode, the probability of having another increases significantly.
The probability, after having had a depressive episode, the likelihood of having another is fifty percent. Having had two depressive episodes, the likelihood of having a subsequent depressive episode jumps to seventy percent and with a history of three depressive episodes, the likelihood of experiencing another depression climbs to ninety percent. So once having had a depression you are at risk for the rest of your life to have future depressive episodes.
