The Willows at Red Oak Recovery®: Depression Treatment Center for Women
Depressive illnesses occur most frequently in women ages 25 to 44 and, according to a study published in PLoS One, traumatic life events were found to be the biggest single cause of depression. Of course, depression can also result from a genetic predisposition for the disorder, hormonal imbalances, stress, or the use of mood-altering chemicals.
