Understanding Depression in Aboriginal Communities and Families

October 2015

Studies have found that compared to the general population, depression rates for Aboriginal people are higher for both males and females residing either on or off reserve. The paper, Understanding Depression in Aboriginal Communities and Families, provides a brief outline of symptoms of depression, followed by a discussion of depression across cultures and the known prevalence of depression among Aboriginal peoples in Canada.
