Happy World Health Day! This year, the World Health Organization (WHO) is leading a one-year global campaign on depression and it's an important one. The goal is to have more people with depression across the globe both seek and receive the help they need.
Depression can affect anyone. People from all walks of life and regardless of age. It is the leading cause of ill health and disability worldwide, according to WHO.
If you or someone you know is suffering from depression, there is nothing to be ashamed about. As the campaign theme states, "Let's talk."
