In the past, it was believed that depression was more prevalent among the poorer and less educated people,

but that is not the case. The truth is, depression can afflict people from all walks of life, and often it hits the most ambitious, creative and conscientious. It is wrong to think that people on the corporate position of the social

ladder are not prone to this disease. In fact, executives and professionals who are burdened with mounting

pressures in their work may be obsessed with all these pressures and become depressed. The suicide of Vincent

Foster, a noted American lawyer and White House Official is a case in point. Despite the honor of his position, which many people thought admirable, he felt overburdened with pressures and decided to take the easy way out.

Studies show that people born later in this century have experienced much more depression than those born earlier. In fact the rate of depression over the last two generations has increased tenfold. Experts theorize that it could be due to the fact that younger generations have higher expectations from life and therefore more likely

to suffer from failure, disappointment and hence, depression.

    研究指出,在本世紀較晚出生的人,比出生較早的人經歷了更多的憂鬱。事實上,憂鬱症的比率在過去兩年增加了10倍。專家推測,可能是因為年輕一代有更高的期望壽命,因此更有可能遭受失敗、失望,因此得憂鬱症。
