Depression Can Be Fatal!

Posted by TylerJ on April 2, 2006, at 15:05:10

As we all know, Depression is an awful illness! In short, to be depressed is often to experience a living hell.

Depression must be taken seriously as a potential killer by patients, their families and their doctors.

The ominous complication of depression is, of course, suicide. In the U.S., suicide remains a leading cause of death; third among all causes of death for people 25-34 years of age and tenth for adults overall. The highest risk is elderly men, especially those with other medical problems. Teenage suicide is an increasing problem; even children commit suicide.

Hopefully, better medications/treatments, and correct diagnosis, as well as early diagnosis, will reduce these statistics in the future.
