Though women seem to be able to have it all in the modern world, thousands struggle with depression every year. Life experiences, stress, high expectations from outside and within, and very little free time are some of the components that lead to such an increasing rate of depression. This frank discussion of female depression encourages and facilitates group work and mutual understanding among women in an effort to increase support structures and reduce stigmas of this increasingly common disorder. Aunque las mujeres parecen poder tenerlo todo en el mundo actual, millares luchan en contra de la depresión cada año. Experiencias de la vida, el estrés, altas expectativas de afuera y de uno mismo, y poco tiempo libre son algunos de los elementos que causan el aumento de depresión entre mujeres. Esta discusión franca sobre la depresión femenina estimula y facilita el trabajo en grupos y la ayuda mutua en un esfuerzo por incrementar el apoyo y reducir los estigmas de este trastorno común.
