The only way this epidemic can be stopped is if societies get rid of the stigma attached to depression, one that ties it to weakness, to laziness, or to dishonesty, people begin to speak openly about this disease and to seek help, and countries begin to take this scourge seriously.

This is made more urgent by the fact that depression, if taken seriously, is one of the problems the wars the world can actually tackle and win.
