Here is a gentle reminder to everyone, and especially people who are more prone to depression during the winter months to be vigilant. The statistics are alarming at 25% of women and close to 20% of men being effected by the disease, so people understand that if you even have an inkling that you might be depressed that you aren’t alone and there are plethora of solutions that medical practitioners can provide you with.
The impact of depression can truly be felt on a macro level and not just an individualistic basis as most would assume. The research is completely black and white when it comes to the financial progression of people suffering from depression on a macro scale, so the sooner we can get people feeling better, the better off your community will be as a whole.
Depression is one of the leading causes of economic burden of any diseases. People are often surprised to hear that it costs more to the society than cancer or heart disease.
