Tell them to "Get Over Depression"

Tell them to "Get Over Depression"

As you scroll through Facebook or Twitter you will see posts that say Depression is a choice and that people should choose to not be depressed.

Depression is medical condition as real as cancer, high blood pressure and arthritis.  Would you tell someone with cancer to "get over it" ... "suck it up" or "deal with it"?  Of course not, which is why family and friends who have been diagnosed as clinically depressed need to be supported.  

It is better to offer love and support when possible.  A great supportive statement is :

"I am always here if you need to talk."  

Simply saying "I love you" or "we will get through this" can make a huge difference to a person diagnosed with depression.
