Depression Resources & Information
Millions of Americans suffer from depression. The Centers for Disease Control report 1 in 10 adults, 18 and over, are depressed at any given time. In addition, people age 45-64, women, minorities, those unemployed, and people who were previously married are most likely to meet the criteria of major depression.
