It may seem freaky, bizarre to some, but yes it is true- many people around the world are prone to depression! It’s not just us who are telling but also research findings have proved it.
“The prevalence of depression globally has been increasing in recent decades ranging from 20% to 25% in women and about 7% to 12% in men. Also, as per the recent statistics by the World Health Organization, 300 million people worldwide suffer from depression.
So what’s the culprit behind this prevalence of depression? Here you can read about it.
The society labels a person with mental illness as ‘Mad’ and this rude labelling can hurt and insult people. But they had never known that the problem is that if we don’t visit a medical professional; if we simply say ‘tough it out,’ then a loss of control over our lives can be the result. I mention depression because it’s so infernally prevalent and many people are prone to depression and suffer from it.
We all know the benefits of healthy habits and thus we try our best to maintain a lifestyle which would help us lead a healthy life physically but what we often forget that being fit both mentally and physically is equally important.

If you are suffering from depression, it is best to seek treatment at once as depression can become a serious mental illness. It can also lead to suicidal attempts if left untreated.
Treatments for depression include antidepressant medication, psychotherapy, and natural remedies. Knowing what causes depression is not enough. To live a depression-free life, you should also be knowledgeable enough on how to cope with depression and how to choose the right remedies for depression.
Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it. — Helen Keller
