Mental Health needs to be taken more seriously. It is too simplistic to say that people who are depressed should talk to someone, and that will stop them killing themselves. Or that killing yourself is selfish because of the harm it causes to loved ones. Depression doesn't care if you're loved, have all the money in the world, or are on the poverty line, trying to just get through every day. It is a disease which can start out as a small voice in the back of the head, telling you your life is worthless and it would be better if you weren't here. At first you can try to ignore it, but that voice? It just grows louder. You can talk to your Doctor, see a Counselor, be put on medication, confide in family and friends, and that voice? It will still be there. Dampened once again and then when you least expect it? Hit you like a ton of bricks. If you're being terrorized over and over again by something, that no matter how many times you try to fight it, keeps rising from the ashes? You're going to go over the edge. More needs to be done by Governments to give Mental Health services more funding, and as a society? We need to stop telling people to kill themselves just because we don't agree with them. Stop bullying people just because we view them as being different. Stop mocking and undermining people who tell us their sorrows. Be kind, be considerate, be patient and reassure people they are not alone. Depression isn't a thing that can be stopped, but it is something we can bring more awareness to.
