Depression is the leading problem among people most especially teenagers because they are still in the stage where a lot of changes happen. It is one of the roots of many other problems that teens like me come face to face with everyday or at least once in our lives. Depression sometimes may result to a more complicated life and if early signs are not distinguished it may lead to suicidal thoughts then death.

More than 3.29 million people in the Philippines are living with depression and an almost equal number of individuals are suffering from anxiety. The WHO-PH’s latest global statistics said that more than 300 million people are battling depression, or an increase of more than 18 percent during the period 2005-2015. In the Philippines alone, it is estimated that 3.29 million people are living with depression and that 3.07 million are be living with anxiety.

Depression (major depressive disorder) is a common and serious medical illness that negatively affects how you feel, the way you think and how you act. Fortunately, it is also treatable. Depression causes feelings of sadness and/or a loss of interest in activities once enjoyed. It can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems and can decrease a person’s ability to function at work and at home. Depression is a leading factor in suicide.

Our mission is to inspire and help others who are suffering from depression and promote euphoria through awareness, advocacy and education. We envision a world composed of people free from depression and anxiety. This is a wordly topic because it is a common and serious medical illness that negatively affects how people feel, the way we think and the way we act. There are many people, most especially teenagers who suffer from anxiety and depression who are somehow afraid to admit that they are because of their fear of the reaction of the people that surrounds them. This is a relevant subject matter because a lot of us somehow, in some way experience it, if not, the people that we love or are close to us.
