A study into the causes and symptoms of post-menopausal depression in women. The writer chose the subject because although it is almost an ?accepted fact? that post-menopausal women will suffer from depression, there seems to be little evidence to support the fact. The paper is broken up into a list of reviews of articles on the subject:
Nicol-Smith's "Causality, Menopause and Depression: A Critical Review of the Literature" Elias's "Mind and Menopause", McKeon's "Cruel Myths and Clinical Facts About Menopause", Goldman's "Menopause Alone Won?t Induce New-onset Depression", Hunter's "Depression and the Menopause"
King's "The Meno-pause That Refreshes", Thomas' "Life Stressors, Not Hormonal Changes" and "Menopause ?Emotions? More Precisely Defined"

From the Paper:

"Many changes occur in a women at menopause, both physical and emotional, and she has reached a stage in her life when her familial and social roles have also changed. Changes in hormone levels at menopause affect women physically and mentally, and women have to adapt to a new role in society. No longer able to produce children, they must divert their efforts to other rewarding issues to maintain their sense of self-worth. For years, women have been lead to expect certain conditions to affect them at menopause, and it is only now that doctors are starting to look more critically at menopause to find out which of these conditions are truly due to the physical changes taking place at menopause and which are due to sociological changes taking place at the same time."
