This video speaks volume of how we tend to perceive about depression.
Not many people in the world have come to acknowledge or deal with the fact that mental illness is real, it’s an integral problem and our attention calls for it. If you find a human around you prone to suicide or suicidal thoughts, seek help for them or give them an ear that can listen to them. Seek professional help and be wise about it.
May God protect us all.
