Depression is selfish, and it affects 20 to 25 percent of the U.S. population and 350,000,000 people globally.
Depression is selfish, and it contributes to more than 41,000 suicide deaths in the United States every year.
Depression is selfish, and it’s a mental illness that shouldn’t be left untreated.
