Is This the Most Depressed Generation?

Are millennials really the most depressed generation when it comes to work? Apparently so, if new research is it be believed.

In fact, one in five millennials say that they’ve been depressed on the job, according to a recent survey entitled ‘Depression and Work: The Impact of Depression on Different Generations of Employees’ and published by Bensinger, DuPont & Associates.

This was the highest number when compared to other generations including the Baby Boomer generation, with 16 percent saying they were depressed, and the Gen Xers, also with 16 percent.

For the study, millennials were classified as being born between the years 1978 to 1999, baby boomers between 1946 and 1964 and Gen Xers between 1965 and 1977.

Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. It affects how you feel, think and behave and can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems.
