Depression is a serious diseaseI read an article about depression published in today's local Hindi newspaper.. According to it 42% people who working in different sectors are inflicted with depression and anxiety. It may be true but I am unable to understand how it could be possible that a person who is already employed and earning money how he can be depressed . I don't deny if many working people might be depressed due to official or personal reason but 42% seems to be exaggerated figure.
However, I know that depression and anxiety kill a person from within. Depression is a serious mental disorder which entails madness and sometimes if it continues a depressed person may take extreme step to commit suicide. Such a person needs our sympathy and company Of If he wants to speak let him vent out. We should not let him be alone. It's often observed that married couples are more depressed than unmarried ones.
One thing should be kept in mind that we should never laught at them. They will not like banter at all. If you happen to deal with such people then keep patience, support them and spend your time with them and most important take them to doctor.
