It was an unfamiliar scene for the two perennial All-Stars: In a game with plenty of stakes, they were on the wrong end of a rout.

The data looks at medical claims from BCBS members from 2013 to 2016 and found a 33 percent jump in diagnosis of major depression over that time. In total, more than 9 million commercially insured people across the United States suffer from major depression, the report estimates.

Millennials and teenagers have experienced the fastest climb in diagnosis rates, up 47 percent and 63 percent, respectively.

  Steve Kerr says Stephen Curry ‘turned a corner’ in Game 4 win Less than a week after he returned from a knee injury that sidelined him more than a month, Warriors guard Stephen Curry is rounding back into game shape. In Sunday afternoon’s Game 4 rout of the Pelicans in the Western Conference semifinals, Curry made strides that can’t be seen in any box score.

"The high rates for adolescents and millennials could have a substantial health impact for decades to come," Trent Haywood, senior vice president and chief medical officer for BCBSA, said in a statement. "Further education and research is needed to identify methods for both physicians and patients to effectively treat major depression and begin a path to recovery and better overall health." 

Women are diagnosed with major depression at double the rate of men.

The report also found wide geographic differences in the diagnosis of major depression among states. The data showed higher rates of major depression in New England, the Pacific Northwest and various pockets throughout the South and Midwest.

The highest rate of depression was in Rhode Island at about 6 percent, while the lowest was in Hawaii at 2 percent. Every state except Hawaii experienced rising diagnosis rates of depression over the course of the study period.

However, the authors note that differences in the effort to screen for major depression can produce varying diagnoses rates across states.

What's behind the rise in major depression diagnoses?

The surge in people being diagnosed for major depression is likely due to a number of factors.

A 2017 study published in the journal Child Development found nighttime usage of a cellphones can increase anxiety and depression in teenagers and reduce self-esteem.

"We've suspected that there's a problem here, we've seen correlational studies, but this shows us that teens using their phone late at night leads to disrupted sleep which leads to increased depression, emotional fragility and sometimes acting out," psychologist and CBS News contributor Lisa Damour told "CBS This Morning" last year.

"Even if they're having a great time, even if they're being super appropriate on their phone, if the phone is getting in the way of sleep they need it still causes harm," Damour said.

  DNA of every baby born in California is stored. Who has access to it? For babies born in California after 1983, DNA is likely being stored by the government, may be available to law enforcement and may even be in the hands of outside researchers , CBS San Francisco's Julie Watts reports. Like many states, California collects bio-samples from every child born in the state. The material is then stored indefinitely in a state-run biobank, where it may be purchased for outside research.

Dr. Karyn Horowitz, a psychiatrist affiliated with Emma Pendleton Bradley Hospital in Rhode Island, notes there are gender differences in how children and adolescents use technology.

"Increased use of electronics, video games more commonly in boys and social media/texting more commonly in girls, can lead to increased conflict both within the home and with peers," Horowitz said in a statement.

The Blue Cross Blue Shield report also suggests a link between major depression and other health conditions. Of the more than 9 million Americans diagnosed with major depression in 2016, just 15 percent were diagnosed with that condition alone.

Eighty-five percent of people were diagnosed with both major depression and one or more additional health condition. Twenty-one percent had one additional health condition, 19 percent had two additional health conditions and 29 percent had four or more additional health conditions.
