Nearly seven in 10 Kentucky adults know who to contact for services or treatment for depression.
But young adults between 18 to 29 - and adults over 65 were less likely to know. That’s according to findings from this month’s Kentucky Health Issues Poll following a survey from last September and October.
Half of those surveyed said they knew a friend or family member they believe has a serious problem with depression. Women were more likely than men to report knowing someone they thought was depressed.
Interact for Health and Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky fund the poll. University of Cincinnati’s Institute for Policy Research contacted more than 1,500 Kentucky adults over the phone.
