Stroke survivors at higher risk of depression
Orland Press Register

One out of every three people who have had a stroke develop depression afterward. That group of survivors is three times as likely to die early as people who have not suffered a stroke, according to a new USC study. The research, to be presented in March at the American Academy of Neurology’s annual meeting in San Diego, examined a large population – 10,550 people between the ages of 25 and 74. They were studied over the course of 21 years.
