Parker Whitehead Psychology 101 Professor Goldinger April 7, 2018 Depression Depression affects almost 7% of the United States, which adds up to about 15 million people nationwide. Major depression disorders often lead to other severe illnesses, along with suicide. Depression is the main cause of suicide. Depression also is associated with other illnesses. 25% of people diagnosed with cancer get diagnosed with depression later in life. Also, other survivors of illnesses such as strokes, heart attacks, HIV, and parkinson's disease experience increased chances of depression later on in life. Women experience depression twice as much as men, and the ratio holds true no matter what the ethnicity or the economic status of the woman experiencing the depression. Minor episodes of depression often follow a woman’s childbirth, which sometimes will lead to a major depression disorder in the future. Depression can have a very negative impact on the economy.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
