A lot of people don't know much about depression. They know about it, but they don't understand how much of a problem it is. This article talks about the signs of depression and what can cause depression. It also talks about treatments. Certain signs include being restless, overeating, insomnia, and even loss in things that once gave the person joy. The most common treatments include Psychotherapy and antidepressants, but there are other brain stimulant therapies that people can go through.
A few questions I want to propose are: how serious do you think depression is? How could you help make someone going through it not feel alone? Do you think that people should "walk on eggshells" when approaching or talking to someone with depression or at least be a little nicer/calmer?
