Young adult, caregiving, gender, depression


This study focused on the level of depression in young adult caregivers (age 18-40) relative to gender, employment, health and relationships.

In this study, gender was found to be a contributing factor in depression among young adult caregivers; however, not a significant factor. This information may lead to broader ways of thinking about caregiving by counselors and individuals working with older adults.
