Abstract

As one of the most prevalent mental disorders, depression is present in all social classes especially among the young and university students. It is accompanied by such symptoms as lethargy, feeling of worthlessness, lack of concentration and power of decision-making which can threaten one's life. This issue is of a greater importance among university students who construct the prospective society. A great body of research conducted with this concern has attested to a high prevalence of depression among university students. This issue is related to diverse genetic and contextual conditions, educational and financial stress, and residence status in terms of being native or non-native, field of study and so on. Moreover, the majority of studies are indicative of a correlation of depression and gender. The present review study has used several studies concerned with the prevalence of depression among university students. It seeks for a more clarified illustration of the prevalence of depression among university students.
