Good questions for good health: Is depression real?

A large part of preventing and treating depression is to be conscious and cautious of the illness. This means being free to talk about depression. The World Health Organisation’s campaign on depression is aimed at encouraging more people to freely talk about depression and to seek help if need be. But in order to talk about depression, we must be knowledgeable of its Symptoms and effect.

This month we provide you with a free downloadable booklet entitled “Depression; what you need to know.” This booklet was compiled by the National Institute of Mental Health. It will help you learn more about depression and how affects people of all ages. We urge all parents to read the section on Teens (page 7-8) so as to be more aware of how to help your child if you think they might be depressed.
