Most of problem that the world encounter without people noticing, is the major depressive disorder or the most known name, “Depression”. It is a psychological condition that negatively affects how you feel, the way you think and how you act. As of 2012, the World Health Organization announced that more than 350 million people from all over the world are suffering from depression. Sadly, many have very little understanding of the disease, which does not help in curbing its prevalence.

Depression is nothing but “the blues”. The most common misconception about Depression is that some say “You’re just having a bad” or “It’ll be okay” and it certainly does not help. They think it’s just an expression or stress that causes us to say we’re depress, but no. Being aware to this psychological condition can cease the number of suicidal ideation to people. We can help them get through and help them to immediately be treated.

MediCard, a leading HMO in the Philippines, hopes to dispel several myths about depression, in the hopes of creating a more positive and helpful environment for people who are suffering from the condition. Just pop some pills and it will go away. Depression is a complex psychological disorder that results from any number of causes, such as abuse, loss of a loved one, family history, or a serious illness.
