Cleveland has made another list, but once again, it’s not one to be proud of.
The city has made the top 15 in a list of cities across the United States with high rates of depression.
So where was Cleveland placed? The Land came in at 13th place along with Elyria in the same ranking.

There has been an increase of almost 18% of Americans diagnosed with depression between 2016 and 2017, and a study conducted by Insurance Providers shows Cleveland has one of the highest rates of depression among “large U.S. metro cities,” with 21.9% of residents diagnosed.
Other Ohio cities fared worse with Cincinnati in 2nd place and Columbus in 9th place.

Now, how did the study determine where the cities were placed?
