Stroke Survivors and Depression
A new report says that 5-year stroke survivors often suffer from depression but many of them don't receive treatment for it.
It's known that stroke survivors who are not depressed live longer and have higher-quality lives than those who are depressed, the researcher pointed out. "Consequently, educating physicians, stroke survivors and their families about the risk of depression after stroke may increase identification of depression and lead to improved treatment."
