NATIONAL DEPRESSION WEEK
This week is National Depression Week (17 - 23rd April 2006) and is set to promote awareness about depression, a chronic and debilitating condition.
Depression Alliance http://www.depressionalliance.org quote that depression is widespread, affecting at least 1 in 5 of us at some point in our lives; tragically for some depression can lead to death.
It may be news to you that BACP commissioned a Depression Poll in March 2006 to Mintel and YouGov plc http://www.yougov.com/
Although it's not clear at this stage what sums of money exchanged hands for this quality research, the results indicate that 66 percent of British adults now experience depression. A second investigation was then carried out among a quarter of the sample group to establish if they have a condition severe enough to see their GP or a therapist.
