    I just read your Hub, and I congratulate you on good information expressed clearly and succinctly!  I do want to suggest, though, that you go back and edit for spelling (anxiety; than which you accidently misspelled as that; perhaps other words too) and add apostrophes where needed. 

    Are the lists of causes and symptoms totally your own work? What about the chart showing the downward cycle?  If it's not your own work, do you have permission to use it here?

    I appreciate your statement that it's not helpful for people to tell a depressed person just to snap out of it.  Not helpful and not possible!  You have done a great job too of describing the feeling of being in a black hole.

    One final little picky item:  The title of the first capsule "You WILL Be Happy Again" might be more accurately stated as "You CAN Be Happy Again" since there's no guarantee that a depressed person will follow your good suggestions to get happy.

    I hope this helps.

    You will probably find that many of us here in HubPages have also had depression.  Writing can be a great way of digging out of the black hole.

    Maybe you could publish a whole series on depression and include stories of your own or of people you know.  I mean by that to have within one Hub (if you publish a series) a balance between factual information (as you already have written), some opinion, and some personal experiences.

    It seems to me that some of the Hubs on HP focus far too much on one individual's personal experience.  But that's really just my own personal opinion.  When I read I like to see some balance between what applies to the broad spectrum (the average) and the way that plays out in specific cases.

    And oops to me!!  In my first response, in commenting on spelling, I misspelled accidentallyhmm hmm hmm
