Now a day, depression is a very serious and common mental illness. Same as normal disease, it’s just like your mind is sick. People have depression normally have many negative thought, and many of them will try to hurt or kill themselves. According to the research, there’s estimated 1 million suicide deaths each year.

So what can we do for them? I think the most important things is to suggest them to go see the doctor, and don’t let them feel alone. Actually there’s already a very effective medical treatment, but most of the patient unwilling to face the problem, because they don’t think they’re sick.

Last month, there’s two female Korean artists who have depression suicided, it’s pretty sad that nobody can help them. So if anyone around you have looks like something wrong, please stay with them, and give them attention. At least don’t think that’s doesn’t matter, because it’s a serious problem.
