Paid care work and depression: a longitudinal study of antidepressant treatment in female eldercare workers before and after entering their profession
Research output: Contribution to journal › Journal article
Previous studies have reported that employees in paid care work (e.g., child, health, and elderly care) have increased rates of hospitalization with depression and treatment with antidepressants. It is unclear, however, whether these findings reflect a causal effect of the work on employee mental health or a selection into these professions.
