Depression and Heart Health: A Two-Way Connection


A heart attack can lead to depression, but the reverse is also true. Why the ties between mental and cardiovascular health matter.

An estimated 10 percent of Americans ages 18 and older report having depression, according to the American Heart Association.

For heart attack patients, that figure more than triples: 33 percent of them develop some degree of depression.

And while depression can follow the onset of cardiovascular disease, the chain of events also may happen in reverse.
