Their result support recent report of Dyrbye and colleagues (2006) which is stated that medical students have high risk of depression disorders and anxiety disorders compared to the general population.
Unit 2 Assignment: Diagnostic Writer’s Response Whether it is a little or a lot, everyone experiences stress at some point. Stress does not always have a negative effect, most of the time the effects can be positive. On the other hand stress is associated with the development of most major mental health problems such as depression, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and pathological aging (Marin, 2011).

Bruce: Now, what I would like to know next is; who is affected the most by this crisis? Dr. Jacobs: If my knowledge is correct, “Men ages 25 to 54 have the highest numbers of prescription drug overdoses and are around twice as likely to die from an overdose than women, but rates for women ages 25 to 54 are increasing faster” (Levi 9). Therefore, those in this age group are affected the most by the prescription drug dilemma. Slade: Let’s not forget that the families and others who have relationships with those involved with the drugs are also affected. In all honesty, we are all affected; there was actually a study showing that “in 2006, nonmedical use of prescription painkillers imposed a cost of about $53.4 billion on the U.S. economy” (Levi 4).
