There are many ways people understand the word ‘depression’ and nearly all of them are wrong. Whether it is our social conditioning that has stigmatized this word or our collective fear to not be remotely related to it, either way, we’re not facing the issue so much as avoiding, running and hiding from it.

The Dark Side Of Social Media And It’s Impact On Mental Health

Studies have shown that social media can be more addictive than cigarettes and alcohol. Well, that isn’t surprising since our phones have become an extension of our bodies, almost like a fifth limb.
