I think we should deal depression n anxiety in people, especially in kids,teens just like other health problems. Like if we have headache or stomachache we consult specialists so why not depression?? Why is it a tabboo?? With little care n medicine or with some precautions it can be cured. It should not be a big deal. It is actually not the patients’ problem it is we,(in most cases) the near n dear ones who are behind the problem.
