Why is depression on the rise?


If everyone can do anything and be anyone they want to be in today's society, then the percent of depression should be going down. So weird, and since humanistic thoughts and beliefs are on the rise, then based on today's logic, we should also see a decrease in these figures.

    I, too, agree with you here C J Kelly. And we need to remind ourselves from "little things big things grow". So we do our everyday bit. Then? Imagine when the whole country does there bit? We can transform what was to where we want to be. Believe.

    How does anyone change that mindset, does it start with one person and grow? After the person thinks they are a victim, how do we turn that person around to start to enjoy life?

    Informative and insightful Grace.

    AND what are we going to do to stop this trend before it is too late?

    What can we do on the micro level? The everyday level?

    And remember there is more of us than the ruling 1%. We speak up! Petition to Parliament

    Before the mid-80's people had no money to have fun. Was not this extra money for fun concept started in the 80's, and now we are going back to the 60's and 70's type economy?
