I was listening to an item on today’s programme where one of the speakers said that the incidence of depression in women is far higher than in men. I remember reading somewhere that in fact the story is more complex than this throw-away statistic might lead you to believe. In communities where alcohol isn’t drunk (US baptists I beleive) the incidence of depression and related illnesses is about the same for both genders. It would appear that the social context allows the expression of the same tendencies by different means. In our wider society drinking and drink-related ills are where the men generally end up. I wonder if this would be a useful start for an item on your programme?
