Adaptation B: The facts

The statistics of mental health and depression is quite shocking, I have gathered all of my research to talk about during the infographic. With this information I can structure my script.

  • 1 in 6 people will through the course of their lives will suffer from depression.
  • 1 in 4 woman will suffer from depression
  • Woman are twice as likely to suffer from mental health as men
  • Woman are more likely to suffer from anxiety as men
  • Woman are more likely to be treated for depression, this is due to woman admitting to problems and symptoms compared to men.
  • Men are more likely to suffer from a drug or alcohol addiction/problem.
  • 1 in 10 people in prison DO NOT suffer from a mental health disorder.
  • 1 in 20 is clinically depressed meaning major depression
  • 1 in 50 British people can suffer from a form of SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder
Symptoms of SAD
