Unique Perspectives on Depression in Women
Women are more prone to depression than men.
According to statistics released by Mental Health America, females are 70% more prone to depression than men and 1 in 8 American women suffer from clinical depression.
This discrepancy might be caused by the fact that women are more likely to report their symptoms than men, but that does not really give the complete picture.
The hormonal make-up of a woman is different from that of a man, so they’re more prone to bouts of depression at certain points in their life.
