SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- World Health Day, which is celebrated every year on April

7th to mark the anniversary of the founding of the World Health Organization (WHO), provides us with a unique opportunity to mobilize action around a specific health topic of concern to people all over the world. The theme of the 2017 World Health Day campaign is "Depression – Let's Talk".

Frost & Sullivan has been researching how digital health applications can help to overcome depression. Most chronic diseases lead to mental health issues or vice versa. Studies report that more than 30% of patients suffering from colorectal cancer or coronary heart disease are prone to depression. Inversely, depressed patients are at a 1.6 times higher risk to develop diabetes or heart disease in their lifetime. While we continue to focus only on the physical manifestations, we cannot pay enough attention to the actual silent killer: depression.

Frost & Sullivan will host a Twitter chat on how digital technologies, such as wearables, artificial intelligence and virtual reality can help to combat depression:
