Depression in Women, Seniors and Children
Certain groups of people experience clinical depression in unique and different ways than others. Depression symptoms in women sometimes look different than those in men, and the symptom presentation may also vary between young and old. The below articles explore each of these more in-depth and explains how depression impacts each group uniquely.
Depression in Women
Women experience depression about twice as often as men. So what kinds of unique concerns do women with depression face? How may treatment vary because of these concerns?
Depression in Seniors
Depression in older adults often goes undetected or is confused with a general health issue or the condition of aging. Yet depression is not a normal part of aging.
Depression in Children & Teens
Kids and teens can have depression just as readily as adults can. Often times it is missed and just chalked up to a normal part of being a teenage (“Oh, he’s just moody!”) when in fact it is clinical depression.
