Here are Facts about Depression That you should Know:
1. Depression Doesn't Always Have a "Good" Reason
Sometimes people become depressed for what seems like a good reason—maybe they lost their job or a close friend passed away—but with clinical depression, there doesn't necessarily have to be a reason for how you feel. The chemicals in the brain which are responsible for mood control may be out of balance causing you to feel bad even though everything in your life is going well.
2. There Are Many Things That Can Cause Depression
The causes of depression aren't completely understood, but it is believed that the best explanation for it is that it is probably caused a combination of factors, such as an underlying genetic tendency towards the condition and certain environmental factors which can act as triggers.
3.Depression Is More Than Ordinary Sadness
Sadness is a part of being human, a natural reaction to painful circumstances. All of us will experience sadness at some point in our lives. Depression, however, is a physical illness with many more symptoms than an unhappy mood.
4.Children Are Not Immune to Depression
A myth exists that says childhood is a joyful, carefree time in our lives. While children don't experience the same problems that adults do, like work-related stress or financial pressures, this doesn't mean that they can't become depressed. Childhood brings its own unique set of stresses, such as bullying and the struggle for peer acceptance.
5.Depression Is a Real Illness
You are not weak or crazy. Depression is a real illness which scientists believe is caused by imbalances in certain chemicals within your brain called neurotransmitters. These neurotransmitters are thought to play an important role in regulating your mood as well as being involved in many other functions throughout your body.
6. Depression Is Treatable
You do not need to suffer if you have depression. There are several very effective treatment options available to you, including medications and psychotherapy. In addition, there are new treatments being developed all the time which are proving to be effective in cases where other treatments have failed.
7.Untreated Depression Is the Most Common Cause of Suicide
The proper diagnosis and treatment of depression is very important in preventing suicides. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Association (SAMHSA), 90 percent of those who commit suicide are suffering from some sort of mental illness. And, most of these people have depression which is either undiagnosed, untreated, or undertreated.

Safe Ways to Talk About Suicide
Open and honest communication about suicide is positive but there are some dos and don'ts to remember when talking about suicide to a suicidal person:

Tell the person he or she is not alone and that you care for him or her.
Listen to the suicidal person and let him or her unload despair and vent anger.
Ask supportive questions like, "How long have you felt this way?"
Always involve professional help such as the resources recommended by the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
Argue or get angry with the suicidal person.
Don't lecture about morals, ethics, the value of life or religion.
Promise confidentiality. It's important that professional help always be involved when a person is suicidal.

Make the suicidal person feel he or she has to justify the suicidal feelings.
Glorify suicide or needlessly talk about others (like celebrities) who have died by suicide.

And always remember that it is not your fault that a loved one is feeling suicidal. You cannot "fix" a suicidal person's feelings. You are not to blame.
