Depression is now regarded as one of Australias most serious health problems. It affects 1 in 10 people and can strike at any time in a persons life. While psychologists are aware that depression can affect people across the lifecycle, little attention has been given to the identification and treatment issues that are particular to each developmental stage. Psychologists Working with Depression Across the Lifecycle takes a broad developmental perspective on depression and offers health professionals creative and practical ideas for helping people who suffer from depression.
