You Can #BeTheDifference For People Facing Depression.
“Everybody has bad days, but depression can make every day a bad day. I would spend days on end in bed, unwilling, or even unable to move, for depression can be so debilitating that it becomes physically disabling.”
Mood disorders affect one in 10 adults in the United States each year. Depression is the most common, impacting 6.8 percent of adults in any one year. Of these adults, only 57 percent receive the professional mental health care or other services that they need.
That means someone around you might be dealing with depression and not getting the support they need.
