Teenage Depression: Fourteen-year-old girls are twice as likely as boys the same age to be depressed, according to a study of 802 public high school students by psychologists at the Oregon Research Institute in Portland. The study is part of a research project to find the age at which the rates of depression for the sexes begin to diverge. Previous studies have found that very similar percentages of young boys and girls suffer from depression, but adult women are twice as likely as men to be depressed. Debra Ladestro
