Thread: Symptoms of Depression no-one talks about

We talk a lot about health these days, but for some reason we tend to forget, that there is more to health than the physical aspects. In fact, the current situation has led to a peak of mental illnesses. In May 2020, the Washington Post wrote that „The coronavirus pandemic is pushing America into a mental health crisis“.

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, nearly one in five adults in the United States live with a mental illness, the most common one being depression. But since the beginning of this year, the numbers have jumped by additional thousands.

So, one way or the other, it is pretty unlikely to walk through this life without getting in touch with at least one of the various forms of depression.

Twitter User @emburke wrote a very detailed thread about symptoms of this illness, especially those that no-one talks about. It is a very interesting read and helps us all to become aware of the severity of mental health.
