4. A Depression Statistic

I was at a retreat last night and during one presentation a powerpoint slide that caught my attention suddenly appeared. It said depression

will be the second greatest cause of premature death and disability worldwide by 2020.

I believe this is because many depressed people see their lives as ongoing torment, hopeless to the end. This blog is dedicated to the premise that this doesn’t have to be the case. Depressed people can “triumph over depression,” can live normal lives, can have hope again. Keep reading future posts to find out how.

About Patrick Day

In 2010, I escaped from four long years of deep, dark depression. This blog shares lessons I learned from those years as depicted in my autobiography - How I Escaped from Depression - as well as other insights about depression and anxiety that only come from someone who has gone through it. When you have a heart attack, you become an expert in heart attacks. When you have diabetes, you become an expert in that condition. As such, I am an expert in depression, with a four-year experiential degree and graduate studies in how to live a life going forward that keeps the ever-lurking Depression at a healthy distance.
