#infographic #mentalHealth #womenAndMen


Women suffer from depression twice as often as men do.

The diagnostic criteria for depression are identical for either sex, but women that have depression experience anxiety, guilt, increased appetite and sleep, co-morbid eating disorders and weight gain more frequently. During a lifetime, depression happens in about 20% of women in comparison to 10% of men.
