Why do you think Indians are among the more depressed people? What should change?

Depression is a global issue, believe it or not. A lot of people don't know what depression is, or the symptoms. In fact, many confuse it with sadness when there's a huge difference. There are many kinds of depressions and there's a scale of severity for each. Some are much more subtle to notice than others such as high functional depression.

Honestly psychiatrist fee are too expensive.. If they will make it lower, and change people's views towards psychiatrist, might be better...

What is the benefit to share such problems with other people?! Either they don't care or they would be happy to know that you are going through some problem. Just discuss it with your family member. Do yoga and seek help.

The notion about highest number of people in the world in India suffer from depression is not correctly stated. Perhaps it has gone unnoticed for a long time. As far my reliable information The US ranked the top of depressed folks with PTSD. I was one of them.

Women have been abused in India for centuries. I hope the intervention of a rich and famous and good looking woman will make a difference! Sadly I doubt it.

They have so many societal expectations in their country I can imagine how depressed they are.

Depression comes from thinking about the past. Meditate, exercise, eat right, take herbs not medicine and most importantly reconnect with the earth...long walks, beach, hiking and camping.
