Welcome

Welcome to the irishhealth.com Depression Clinic, which has been developed in association with Aware.

At any point in time more than 7% of the population have depression. Irish research has shown that it is more common in women, teenagers, the elderly and in single people. Depression presents itself in many different ways: anxiety, sleeplessness, lack of appetite, and difficulty concentrating are very common. Often depression is the last thing on someone’s mind when they are feeling out of sorts.

This clinic offers comprehensive information on depression, from symptoms and diagnosis to treatment. We also have a section for families and carers. Among our advanced resources is an Online Video Q&A featuring, Dr Pat McKeon, consultant psychiatrist.
