Many people know of depression from experiencing it themselves or seeing friends or coworkers struggle with lethargy, trouble concentrating, and chronic fatigue. It’s this low mood over a long period of time most people identify as depression.
World Health Organization estimates proposed that depression is common in all regions of the world. A new study discovered that around 5% of people in the community had depression during the last year.
Depression is considered as the most common reason found to commit suicide. People of all ages have become the victim of this underestimated issue across the globe.
Talking about our country,
“About 800,000 people commit suicide worldwide every year, of these 1.35 Lakhs (17%) are residents of India. It was evident that the suicide rate increased from 7.9 to 10.3 per 100,000 between 1987 and 2007”.
Celebrities all around the world like: Adam Clayton, Ben Affleck, Chris Brown, Demi Lovato, Deepika Padukone, Jon Hamm, Selena Gomez, Zac Efron, etc. have undergone rehabilitation. They felt the immediate urge to get treated because of the numbness and void created in their life. According to them, the decision to go under rehabilitation has come real positive and the fear of relapse doesn’t bother them.
Recently, at the India Economic Summit 2017, celebrated Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone and well-known physician Murali Doraiswamy sat down to discuss tackling the stigma surrounding mental health. In this conversation, Deepika opened about the downfall she had because of depression and how she managed to get out of it.
“The directors thought that I was mentally unstable. They somehow assumed I wouldn’t be able to do the desired acting. It was a bad time for me personally. I still fear relapse”, says Deepika.

It shouldn’t be a shame to express and just like the most celebrated actress of India can be vocal about it, everyone who is suffering from the depression should speak about it as it will eventually help themselves to come out of it completely.
Being sad and being depressed are two diverse things. The most common reaction is, ‘How can you be depressed? Are you a psycho, you mean to say?’. People generally emphasize on physical fitness, but we should understand that mental health is equally important.
“People think depression is sadness, crying or dressing in black. But people are wrong. Depression is the constant feeling of being numb.”
Depression comes in many arrangements and shows a wide array of symptoms depending on the type, the length, sternness, and the precipitating cause. If your behavior and mood match the stereotypical idea, you may self-diagnose or seek relief from a therapist.
But what if your most prevalent change is a being short-tempered or doubting your memory and problem-solving abilities? But sometimes, it’s more than what a physician would solve; it’s above the average bar.
