Report: Women Twice As Likely To Be Depressed
(Washington, DC) — New data suggest the number of people experiencing depression hasn’t budged in the last decade, but claim women are twice as likely to be depressed. Just over ten-percent of women reported signs of depression between 2013 and 2016 compared to five-point-five-percent of men who reported symptoms. However, the NCHS claims the largest discrepancy is still among ethnicity and income, with more African Americans and lower-income individuals reporting more symptoms. The National Institute of Mental Health says you should seek medical help if you are experiencing a persistent sad, anxious, “empty,” hopeless, irritable or pessimistic mood.
