Depression

Depression varies from person to person. An estimated 33 to 35 million U.S. adults are likely to experience depression at some point during their lifetime. The disease affects men and women of all ages, races, and economic levels. However, women are at a significantly greater risk than men to develop major depression. Studies show that episodes of depression occur twice as frequently in women as in men. The encouraging news is that it may be successfully treated.

Depression left untreated may lead to serious consequences. The personal pain and feelings of worry may become so serious that the individual’s ability to perform at work or school becomes compromised. Suicide may become a possible risk for those who are depressed. While not everyone who commits suicide is depressed, the majority are.
