Depression in women -- Etiology;
An estimated 10 million Americans suffer from depression of one sort or another at a cost of some $27 billion a year in loss of work productivity, permanent disability, depression related alcohol and drug abuse, and the actual costs of treatment (Rovner, 1992). But Americans are ill at ease, ill-prepared and ill-informed about how to deal with depression. According to Rovner, a survey by the National Institute of Mental Health found that more than half of those polled believe depression may be linked to personal or emotional weakness.
