According to the World Health Organization (WHO), depression is a leading cause of disability among hundreds of millions of people worldwide.
In the Philippines, WHO records show 2,558 suicide cases attributed to depression and varied mental health disorders.
Suicides caused by severe depression are particularly on the rise among the youth.
Philippine Star cites that in 2013, a U.P. student in Manila killed herself for failing to pay tuition. Also, just months later, 2 students from Batangas took their lives over failing grades.
Just a few days ago, a known musician junped to his death from a condominium building. It had been strangely live-streamed and gone viral.
Understand depression. It’s a must before emergency comes.
And remember, there is a drugless, natural treatment for depression that goes to the “roots” for true, lasting recovery and wholeness.
