Let's talk about depression

"People with mental illness should not suffer in silence".

In collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO) the writer and illustrator Matthew Johnstone tells the story of overcoming the "black dog of depression". The losses are incurred by households, employers and governments: for households, with absence from work affecting household income; for employers, with lower productivity of employees when at work and absence from work; and for governments, with higher health and welfare expenditures. Households lose out financially when people can not work.

With a better state of mind, these workers would be able to regain confidence and be more productive. Considered rather minor and often imperceptible, depression or any other form of mental disorder is clear, present and real, said Dr. Sedevi.
