Is Depression Common in People With Down Syndrome?

By    |   Monday, 13 Apr 2015 10:05 AM

Question: Are depression and anxiety related to Down syndrome?

Dr. Hibberd's answer:

Yes. Depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and other mental health conditions can co-exist with Down syndrome, in childhood or adulthood.

They are not typically related conditions. And, unfortunately, Down syndrome does not offer protection from depression, bipolar disorder, or other conditions.
