There is a distinct pattern along gender lines when it comes to prevalencerates of depression: unipolar depression is twice as common in women (WHO, n.d.).Depression has been linked to the experience of discrimination (Belle & Doucet, 2003), violence(Pico-Alfonso et al., 2006; Ludermir et al., 2010) and human rights abuses.To prepare for this assignment, choose a population group in Australia.Then, in 1500 words, address the following, being sure to include a rationale that justifies your response:
