Depression is not "one size fits all," particularly when it comes to the genders. Not only are women more prone to depression than men, but the causes of female depression and even the pattern of symptoms are often different. Many factors contribute to the unique picture of depression in women—from reproductive hormones to social pressures to the female response to stress. Learning about these factors can help you minimize your risk of depression and treat it more effectively.
Handouts on Depression
The handouts available from this page provide general information on the characteristics of depression and how depression can be prevented and treated. They are intended for people who are living with depression themselves or who know someone who is. They include practical advice on what to do.
We hope you will find these materials useful for your campaign activities. Here are a few ideas for dissemination: health-care centres, doctors’ surgeries, clinics, hospitals, schools, colleges and universities, supermarkets, leisure and social clubs, places of work, places of worship, and public transport.
Each handout is being produced in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish. These versions will be made available on this website as they are finalized.
