Mental Health: Men, women sing blues in different keys

A new study that looks a depression in the workplace found that job stress and a lack of social support in the workplace were associated with major episodes of depression in men. For women, depression was linked to a lack of decision-making authority on the job and low levels of social support. The study used data from the Canadian Community Health Survey and provides a unique portrait of depression in the workplace because of the large sample size (over 24,000 people).
