It is thus of clinical relevance to identify alternative, scientifically based, treatments. Our approach is based on the recent evidence that urbanicity has been shown to be associated with an increa...

... Several intervention studies were identified [24][25][26][27][28][29][30][31][32][33][34][35][36][37][38][39]. Of them, a minority included patients with MDD only [24][25][26][27][28][29], and the majority [21,[30][31][32][33][34][35][37][38][39] recruited mixed samples including patients with depressive disorders, although separate results for that group were not reported. ...
