The understanding of depression has become more apparent, with a lot of pressure existing in people's life. Influenced by rapid industrialization, the speed of life is increasing.Even there are disorders in our usual meals,sleep or exercise. It's difficult for us to life for us without a little depression. Besides, with the development of psychology, there are a lot of study working on depression.
The sources of education are open to society. The chances to be educated are growing. Maybe the lack is not education, but the wish to education.
Everyone will deny themselves, sometimes. But it is not common and permanent.
Society still lacks education or live in denial with mental disorders. Many people are still concerned about seeking help for mental health problems. One of the reasons why society lives in denial with mental disorders is that if they do, they'll believe that they can be locked up away from the general population as if they're a danger to others. Another reason that they won't seek help is that they believe that it might affect their normal life like getting a job, living on your own, or being a parent. In some cultures, some families aren't as accepting as others, in which some families will recommend an individual to seek help while the other ones will just want that person to push through them without seeking professional help.
Depression, though has been confirmed as a mental dis order, the understanding of it isn't well educated enough towards anyone. Personally towards my family, depression isn't recognized as a mental disorder my parents strongly believe that "it'll go away". The biggest brother in my family suffers from a strong case of depression from his past and is only recognized by me and his most trusted friends. Society tends to give an apparent form of recognition towards depression existing but don't really say much from there. Spouses will most likely never understand what depression is until middle school if the school provides the education for depression. The facts of what depression is are provided. However, suggestions and other forms of understanding how to help that individual cope with depression aren't as apparent. Everyone needs a better understanding of what depression is.
The understanding of depression has become more apparent because people have seen how serious it is.Family becomes a support system with family members that have depression. People have seen people commuting suicide and realize what a real hard thing is dealing with depression.
Hi Nancy Nunez,
I agree with you that depression has been more apparent because of what we hear in the media. We as a society know how serious bullying can be and the consequences of the victim. Families need to learn how to communicate and be aware of what is going on with all their family members.
I believe that people still lack education on mental illness is. people don't want to accept a mental illness like in some cultures having a mental illness is considered like being crazy basically. although you hear mere people bringing awareness we all need to spread the word and take advantage of all the resources that support people suffering from mental illness nobody should live in depression.
individuals lack education on mental illness. many individuals don't like to accept someone different someone seeking mental help. many people would just thibk that they're crazy and some will help however overall people don't care as long as its not them. Nobody should suffer with depression and get treated differently.
There is still no understanding in depression family sometimes doesn't know if the person is dealing with the issue because many people cover it up and don't show it. There should be more promotion on depression maybe someone could see a affect one of the familly members and it can prevent these things from happening.
Coming from a Latino family, they seem too not be that concerned or informed about the importance of mental health . When someone says something about depression they seem to think it’s just a big word for feeling down/sad. From where they come they see mental illness as a form of being crazy , but that’s not the case many young adults in our community suffer from depression and the families don’t really understand how to help them . So I do believe there is a lack of education on mental illness from our families but I do however feel that our generation is more understanding of these problems and are really supportive too one another.
I think we are getting to know about these mental disorders but after a shooting has taken place. We as society need more funds for mental health awareness and resources. It is really disappointing to hear the news announcing a mentally ill person committed a shooting, murdered 6 and 20 injured. For example there has been a lot of school shootings. Even men have been depressed by pressure of the role of a man, they kill their family, and committed suicide. I have seen these cases to be common with wealthy persons that lose everything. I think technology has advanced but it has affected us too by not paying to much attention to other human beings and the warning signs of depression or a mental disorder.
Depression has yet to be fully understood. There are many families and kids that don't fully comprehend that depression is a battle that one has to go through every day of their life. Not many things can help combat this since usually the person who has depression often feels alone in the world and can't really speak to anyone except for possibly 1 person. It doesn't help that people that don't understand this mental condition only degrade it by saying things such as "Its all in your head" and "Stop exaggerating, you are still young and you don't know what real life is like" because it only makes the person dealing with depression feel worse. Depression is something that needs to be explained to everyone that way when you meet someone who does have that condition, you will know how to handle that situation and hopefully help that person out.
Depression is a topic that is known yet not enough is done to fully understand. Depending on the culture or community the response is difference. In the hispanic culture, for the most part, it still remains a "nonsense" topic. Some people believe that the person is seeking attention or just "acting dramatic" or overreacting. Yet, here in America more tends to be done to promote depression. Like on television, we tend to see more commercials regarding the situation. Some artist, such as Logic, even made a song about it; he title his song the phone number of American National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Even so, the topic is more talked about in more recent years. At Elac, we have a mental health department yet that is as much as it is promoted. So to answer the question, there is still lack of education and many people still live in denial.
Depression is a common mental illness that becomes common in life. Most people in society do not know about the emergence of this disease. Due to the lack of education in this area. Many families have become more ill due to failure to get help in the presence of minor depression. Some people with depression commit suicide. Some people choose to ignore or resist mental illness.
I believe that depression has become more and more frequent in today's life. Many families and students have gone through depression that would likely end up having a aggressive behavior, having a divorce affecting the kids or worst suicide. Depression is like a desease spreading everywhere and anywhere causing so much pain and anger that can lead to school shooting or an act of violence. If we can find the a way to stop depression then life can be a different world.
Depression is still apparent becuase it is clearly how depression is or why they get it depression is gotten by maybe feeling lonely or losing a loved one
Depression has been a long lasting dilemma that worsens due to lack of support from families and society. Depression has gotten more apparent overtime mainly because the amount of people who suffer from depression has increased. Several types of artist and media outlets have spread their awareness on depression by making songs, videos, or even posting personal and inspirational stories. Famous people like Logic and Ed Sheeran have made music that relates to depression and its effect on individuals, families, and society. Shows like "13 Reasons Why" have spotlighted the affects that depression can have on a community as well as how it can lead someone's suicide. Inspirational athletes such as Demar DeRozan from the Toronto Raptors has publicly stated that he suffers from depression but focuses on his passion for basketball and the love he has for his fans. People have managed to make hotlines and even websites for those who suffer through depression and can anonymously talk to someone about their problems (https://www.betterhelp.com) (Text CONNECT to 741741). Depression has become more apparent as people feel more free to come out and publicly speak of it. The more public figures that spread awareness on depression make a larger impact for those who don't know how to speak of it or handle it. Even families have become more understanding on depression because of past experiences either with friends, spouses, or themselves.
I do believe that mental heath has become something more people are willing to accept and talk about. However there are tons of people who don't understand the difficulties and obstacles that come with mental disorders. It is just a matter of gaining knowledge and understanding how to talk to theses people who feel like they are alone.
Some people still believe they know or have narrowed down depression. But depression isn't something fully understandable; those who haven't felt the feeling simply can't understand. Because how can a person who has never experienced something understand what that something
Depression can be a serious mental disorder some one can go through. Sometime a family relative might be going through depression and you won’t know it until it’s to late.Like one of the presenter said,”you can’t tell while hanging out with some one.” I agree with that because a person can be smiling but could be feeling depressed at the same time. Also another presenter said,”people have complications about understanding what is it to be depressed.” So I think there’s lack in understanding what it is to feel depression cause me myself don’t know what it is to be depressed.So it tough to be able to learn how to help someone when they’re in that situation or not even to learn how but to be able to figure out if the person is going through a faze like that and try to help them. So overall I believe it not as apparent till this day because there has been a lot of death due to depression because people have no one to talk to when there depressed and they don’t seek for help. So there’s no way you can help someone or figure out when someone is depressed. This mental disorder is hard to deal within the society & relatives .
I believe that society, families, spouses still lack lack education and are definitely in denial about mental disorders. people are scared to admit they are suffering from a mental disorder because of the stigma it comes with. people suffer everyday with no support from friends or family I think we should spread awareness and take advantage of all the resources available to us and educate ourselves about these mental illnesses and be compassionate to others and what they go through on a daily basis
Depression is a real mental disorder but i do believe that there is a lack of education and communications on depression. Society/ families/spouses don't speak up when they'er feeling depress because they wouldn't want to be seen different or judged. I also believe that it depends on the type of person you're, if your open with your feelings or not.
Society, family, spouse still lacks education or live in denial with mental disorders. Stress is the number one cause of mental disorders. We are too busy to work and study and fail to take care of ourselves. Mental health is as important as physical health. Indeed, it is harder or even impossible to cure a wound inside. People will use drugs to make themselves feel better but later they will experience withdrawal symptoms and their mental disorders only get worse.
