From BBC News:

Life may begin at 40, but research suggests that 44 is the age at which we are most vulnerable to depression.

Data analysis on two million people from 80 countries found a remarkably consistent pattern around the world.

The risk of depression was lowest in younger and older people, with the middle-aged years associated with the highest risk for both men and women.

Well speaking from a womans point of few i think its obvious. Doesnt need thousands of pounds of research. Just logical thinking

Hair is turning grey
menopause usually starting
weight gain
hubby runs off with someone half your age
work promotes people younger than you
dont understand the music anymore
your children are ready for leaving home

thats just for starters am sure the other female members can think of many more.

Maybe there is male perspective as well:rolleyes:
