Does depression affect adults only? No. For singer and songwriter Judy Collins, depression began in her teenage years and is as vivid to her now as it was then. For Collins, her depression led to alcoholism, which damaged her vocal cords and threatened her career.
Can depression travel through families? Yes. In her particular case, Judy Collins described her depression as a family legacy. It affected her father, herself, and her son, Clark, who committed suicide in 1992. In fact, scientists are currently investigating the hereditary, genetic bases for depression.

Horrific stories of rejection of gay youth by their families have filled the news lately. And the statistics reflect the reports.
