According to APA rules a reference title should be in sentence case which means only capitalise the first letter of the title and subtitle with the exception of proper nouns ( e.g. Maslow's hierarchy of needs). Use lowercase for anything else. In general do not capitalise the names of  diseases, disorders, therapies, treatments, theories, concepts, hypotheses, principles, models, and statistical procedures. For example:
