Depression has become one of the most disabling conditions in the world especially in developed countries.
Mental illnesses are much more complex than physical illneses because they are linked with many social contexts.
Psychaitric drugs can only stablize the styptoms but they can’t cure depression.
Depression is also caused by the lack of communication, things get worse if the voices go unheard.
Why is there such a strong social stigma around depression,
why would people get shamed by telling their honest thoughts?
Where there is society, there is depression,it is a natura and inevitablel disease that can strike any one of us, even the most strong minded ones.
But if we start educating ourselves about the causes and start caring for people around us,
we can prevent it from happening to more of us.
We are all sensitive, so please, be nice 🙂
