Today women are killing themselves at an alarmingly rate, especially women between the ages of 60 and 65. 1010ParkPlace is forwarding our friend and colleague, Dr. Margaret Rutherford’s, Ph.D. Clinical Psychology, anonymous survey about Female Depression.
Dr. Rutherford has already conducted a similar study with men, where she asked them to fill out a survey on how they perceive depression, and if they would, or would not seek treatment. Almost 1,000 men responded and gave candid and revealing answers and comments. Dr. Rutherford is now asking for women to complete this short survey of 10 questions.
Again, the survey is completely anonymous. Your email address will not popup anywhere on your answers or your submission, so no one—but you—will know you’ve participated. Dr. Rutherford’s looking for all ages and backgrounds of women to participate, whether you’ve received treatment for depression, or you have no inclination to seek help.
If you are currently experiencing symptoms of depression, please consider talking to a qualified professional therapist. Many women needlessly suffer from depression. Some of the symptoms may include:
- A general feeling of sadness
- Not enjoying things the way you used to.
- Sleeping too much or insomnia.
- Weight gain or loss.
- Feelings of helplessness or feeling hopeless.
- Wanting to be alone.
- Thoughts of wanting to end it all or hurting yourself.
- Mental fogginess.
- Difficulty making decisions.
Margaret, Thanks for the survey! I answered it. Think it’s helpful, even if we’ve never talked to anyone about the subject of depression.
