If I Have Experienced Depression, Am I More Likely To Get In Trouble With The Law?

Question: If I have experienced depression, am I more likely to get in trouble with the law?

Answer: Depression can cause erratic behavior which may lead to legal difficulties. A common example is a patient with depression who may be drinking alcohol or using other substances as an effort to self-medicate. However, as long as that individual remains in treatment, he or she can expect to lead a full and productive life.
