We know education corresponds with success.
We also know the more successful the more alcohol you consume.
The more successful you are, the more you drink, research finds - Health News, Health & Families - The Independent
There is some merit to the idea that the large LDS population is more likely go to the Dr for anti depressants, rather then drinking the blues away.
However if it is the education causing Utah to take these drugs it is not a good thing either. Depression and Anxiety, as i know it as a medical condition, are based on chemical imbalances in the body and disease tends to follow genetic lines not cultural ones, so just as the non LDS Dr and Lawyer in Iowa try to drink the stress away,(self medicate without actually having the disease)there would be plenty on LDS Utes who get the meds without the need.
Members with the actual disease are more likely to seek the drug rather then self medicate with alcohol.Good if you have the disease.
But also members with a little bit of the blues, or stress are more likely seek the drug, then "self medicate" with alcohol. Bad if you don't.
