Symptoms of Depression in Women

Out of the 15 million people who experience depression in the US, over 80% of them are women. Up to one in 4 women is likely to have an episode of depression at some point in their lifetime. Unfortunately, nearly 2/3s do not get the help they need to overcome this debilitating disorder.

Symptoms of depression in women include:

  • Persistent sad, anxious, or “empty” mood
  • Loss of interest or pleasure in activities, including sex
  • Restlessness, irritability, or excessive crying
  • Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, helplessness, hopelessness, pessimism
  • Sleeping too much or too little, early-morning waking
  • Appetite and/or weight loss or overeating and weight gain
  • Decreased energy, fatigue, feeling “slowed down”
  • Thoughts of death or suicide, or suicide attempts
  • Difficulty concentrating, remembering, or making decisions
  • Persistent physical symptoms that do not respond to treatment, such as headaches, digestive disorders, and chronic pain
