Depression: No Longer the “Common Cold” of Mental Health

I think this article is an important reminder of how far we have come in understanding and treating depression. It’s clear that our society is no longer treating depression as the common cold of mental health, and I think that is a great thing. We are now taking depression seriously and are making advances in understanding and treating it. I’m glad that there is a growing awareness of the seriousness of depression and that we are taking the necessary steps to help those suffering from it.

As a 57-year-old man, I’ve seen first hand how much our society’s understanding of mental health has progressed over the years. The increasing focus on treating depression as a serious medical condition is an encouraging sign that this illness can be treatable for so many people. It’s wonderful to see advances in mental health being made and initiatives being taken to not only spread awareness about depression, but also support those struggling with the illness. We have truly come a long way in terms of helping those suffering from depression, and it is my sincere hope that continues in the future.
