If you know someone that needs help, show them this, especially those that think they can handle depression on their own. Sometimes, you need professional help and there's NO SHAME IN IT! If you think depressed people should be shamed for needing help, then, let's start shaming people for having heart issues, diabetes, broken bones, etc. Sounds ABSURD, doesn't it? EXACTLY . Someday, we will recognize depression for what it is...a medical condition, not a "bad mood!"
