Ask those people to stop watching TV, stop using smartphones, stop using Internet, and send them to mountains or islands, and they will get healed.

I think it is very sad that so many are so sick and go unrecognized. It may be caused by many factors in the world today such as extreme violent incidents.

There are plenty of things effecting people and the problem is how to shut it all off,i find it in simply avoiding all them as no fear no worries no mind block, easy breathing

This is apt to say,as if one don't engage him/herself in some act mostly in the act they believe and love,they fall to think and there it begins ,the hell called depression

Yes, it's a modern disease, I think it is because we are inundated with negativity @abhinalstrikr .

We are brought up to look outside of our self and to aim the impossible dreams rather than focusing on our Self and our well being .. Materialism is depressing ..

@abhinalstrikr I would argue that depression is more than thoughts. It's not the same for every person. Sometimes is has to do with brain chemistry and thinking happy thoughts cannot change that. Sometimes it's the result of trauma that's not the person's fault—a horrific accident or received in war, particularly if the person was young and didn't understand what was going on. It is a complex issue with no one single answer and often no definite cure. It can be a constant struggle.

@msiduri i agree it's not of one kind but unless one is not hurt and the thought processes does not come to standstill we are not depressed,then the hurt may be from various sources as you said but if one have the mentality of ignorance specially the negative acts of thoughts,they can save themselves

I wonder what the rate in now in 2017. I have depression and now my 9 year old son was diagnosed with it. I think he goes along with the Aspergers he was also diagnosed with.

A large part of this is due to lack of general resources. Not everyone is financially sounds, not everyone has food to eat, or water to drink, or clean are to breathe. This causes a stress response in the body. The fight or flight response. Back when we were actually able to manage our stress, we did just that. We either fought our problems head on , or we ran away from them. Now our stress response gets turned on, but it doesn't get turned off, usually because we haven't associated a movement to de-stress (fighting or running away. The response is now a deer in the head lights, which turns into anxiety, which turns into an immune system issue, which leads you to get sick, and now all of a sudden you're dexpressed, your body aches, you get chronic headaches, etc. My career revolves around getting people out of those patterns and into new manageable habits that won't leave you stressed and depressed. Regular workouts will help for a short period, but that too will fail in the long run as the exercise a lot of us do is not actually advantageous, but quite a detriment actually.
