#LetsTalk About Depression And What To Do

Did you know that depression is the largest cause of disability worldwide?

At worst, depression can lead to suicide. During humanitarian emergencies, 1 in 5 people are affected by depression and anxiety.

Depression and anxiety lead to a global economic loss of over $1 trillion annually.

Just three percent of most government health budget is spent on mental health. Depression can be treated and prevented at relatively low cost. 

Treatment usually involves talking therapy, anti-depressant medications or both.

If you think you’re dealing with depression, talk to someone you trust and seek professional help.
