Today is World Health Day. This year, WHO is leading a year-long campaign called “Depression: let’s talk”. The overall goal of the campaign is that more people with depression, everywhere in the world, both seek and get help.

According to the latest estimates from WHO, more than 300 million people are now living with depression, an increase of more than 18% between 2005 and 2015. Lack of support for people with mental disorders, coupled with a fear of stigma, prevent many from accessing the treatment they need to live healthy, productive lives.

Quote from The Anxiety & Phobia Workbook by Dr. Edmund Bourne, which I became acquainted with during the @theroyalmhc's 4-week Day Hospital program as an outpatient.
