Who gets depressed?

At some point in their lives, most everyone gets depressed. Depression occurs in every country and affects both men and women alike. However, depression is twice as common among women as among men, according to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). Studies have shown 20 percent of women experience at least one episode of depression in their lifetime. Researchers believe that certain biological, hormonal, and psychosocial factors unique to women may be linked to women’s higher depression rates. Clearview can help both men and women get the depression treatment they need to break free from their symptoms and live a happier and healthier life.
