World Mental Health Day PSA: Focus on depression

At its worst, depression can be a frightening, debilitating condition. Millions of people around the world live with depression. Many of these individuals and their families are afraid to talk about their struggles, and don't know where to turn for help. However, depression is largely preventable and treatable. Recognizing depression and seeking help is the first and most critical towards recovery.

In collaboration with WHO to mark World Mental Health Day, writer and illustrator Matthew Johnstone describes living with and overcoming the "black dog of depression."

well it can ruin everything for some people to get help for depression. For an example if they have various syphtoms and diseases and you have been fully diagnosed and if you show some sign of depression the doctor doesn't bother to help and blames everything on that, when the depression only came because of the physical diseases -_- It ruined everything for me and i'm not going to get help until they have figured out what's wrong with my body and immune system first.
