This will be my final entry for this blog at least for this class…I plan on continuing to do blog entries for things that have caught my interest! So do stay tuned!.
For my final assignment I wanted to do a piece that spreads an important message so the subjects I chose were depression and suicide. Depression affects many people all over the world as does Suicide it’s nothing to bew taken lightly or joked about.
“According to depression statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 9 percent of adult Americans have feelings of hopelessness, despondency, and/or guilt that generate a diagnosis of depression. At any given time, about 3 percent of adults have major depression, also known as major depressive disorder, a long-lasting and severe form of depression. In fact, major depression is the leading cause of disability for Americans between the ages of 15 and 44, according to the CDC. Understanding these very real depression statistics helps paint a fuller picture of the impact of depression in America.”
It is my wish that this piece helps those who deal with this demon known as depression and can be helped to not give in and commit suicide. Remember, it is never too late to seek help.
