I would be very surprised if you told me you don’t know or haven’t ever known anyone who has suffered from depression. I would say either you are lying or you do know a person but they are really good at masking it.
According to the Mental Health Foundation, Depression is thought to be the second leading cause of disability worldwide and a major contributor to the burden of suicide and ischemic heart disease.
Yet whenever the subject of depression is bought up people tend to go very quiet on the subject as it is still very difficult to talk about.
Have a look at these lovely comics, illustrated by Colleen Butters. They capture some aspects of what it is like to live with depression.
