There have been several studies that have been conducted so far in order to measure the number of patients who had been suffering from the menace of depression and anxiety issues. It has been discovered so far that in the population of 4875 people who were studied for a duration of 2 months, it was discovered that nearly 74 percent of the people are directly or indirectly a victim of the depression in one or the other way. Therefore, the reasons behind the increasing cases of depression and anxiety can be attributed to the lifestyle changes and the difficulty which is normally encountered by the people in ensuring their survival in the present world. In addition, the results denoted that stress has become the most common factor and has affected the lives of at least 85 percent of the people in one or the other manner. In addition, there have been many studies that have been conducted so far in order to measure the number of veterans’ affairs, and hence, it was concluded that these people should be given meditation classes and access to a homely environment for helping them in the best possible manner. The following guidelines have been suggested to interpret the BDI‐II 4: minimal range = 0 to 13; mild depression = 14 to 19; moderate depression = 20 to 28; and severe depression = 29 to 63.
