Depression is real and can be treated

World Health Organization (WHO) (@WHO) Tweeted:
Lack of support for people with #depression or #MentalHealth conditions, coupled with a fear of stigma, prevent access to treatment #LetsTalk https://t.co/wLjwEpe1kp

1. Careful with the blanket statements

It is NOT available to everyone. It is if you have internet access, friends, family, transportation, healthcare, don't live in a rural area, don't have agoraphobia, don't have severe social phobia, had it ignored all your life until you gave up.

For many it is just 'waiting to die' time.

Sorry to be so depressing on your post. I get your wanting to help but, it just doesn't work that way.

2. Thank you for the dose of reality

The pie in the sky promise that help is available to everyone is misleading.

3. Change, Wycholka, Pandoras Box

Hope exists.

Nothing is available to everyone.
If my posts give even one DUer a glimpse of Pandoras Box, I can rejoice, but I'll likely not know.
