Depression and dependence

24% of Canadians consume more than 5 units of alcohol to cope with depression, classifying them as substance dependent. Symptoms of depression include overwhelming feelings of sadness, anorexia, anhedonia (lack of interest), sleep disturbances, poor concentration and loss of libido. Women were found to be twice as likely as men to have suffered a bout of depression.
