Women and Depression


Depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide, according to the World Health Organization, and affects women at about twice the rate that it does men. The Connecticut Health I-Team dove deep into the data about women and depression and interviewed doctors, psychologists and women suffering from depression. The result was two 20-minute podcasts on women and depression, and stories that accompanied them. The stories were featured on C-HIT’s website and published by C-HIT’s 16 media partners.
