Depression can affect anyone,

but the effects may vary depending the age and sex of the person.

The higher risk is due to the hormone changes brought on by the menstruation, menopause and pregnancy.


Men; their risk for depression is lower then women, (1 in 4women and 1 in 10 for men get depression) men are more likely you undiagnosed

and less likely to seek help from doctors.

They may show the symptoms do depression but are more likely to become angry and hostile to ward people,

they could makes their depression by using alcohol or drug abuse.


  Suicide is an especially serious risk for men with depression.

Who are four time likely than women to kill themselves.


Elderly, older people may lose loved ones and have to adjust to living alone, they themselves could be physical ill and unable to be as active as they used to be.
All these changes can make a contribution to the depression.

new pages and revising statistics.



The true life pages are of those who have contacted the page, with they own memory of what

places etc. for their own protection.
