“Those who don’t wear hearing aids are 50 percent more likely to suffer from sadness and depression”

The report, presented at the American Psychological Association’s annual conference in Toronto, also found that sufferers between 20 and 69 years of age were less than half as likely to seek assistance as those 70 and older, due to vanity, denial, or being unaware of treatment.
