I hate how depression is such an overly diagnosed mental disorder that people who truly struggle with it aren't taken seriously. Suicide rates have skyrocketed in the last couple of years and nobody seems to be doing anything about it. Most therapy is just cramming pills down people's throats and treating the mass and not the individual. There's less and less aimed to help those who truely need help. People seem to be more and more spoiled and selfish as the years go on. Teens especially are finding it harder and more expensive to get good help to the point that many just give up and end their pain themselves. My school has had three suicides this year alone and that's only going to get worse. Schools are pushing academics more and more and putting more pressure on students to the point that personal problems are almost completely ignored. When people commit suicide it's usually just brushed off as them being weak or careless or just wanting attention, but what it really is, is that there was nobody who cared or wanted to help them and they couldn't take it anymore. I personally feel there should be more aimed towards properly diagnosing depression and properly treating the individual instead of the large majority and making it easier for those who truely struggle to get help. There should also be measures put into place to prevent depression from happening in the first place. We need to care about each other more and respect people's person issues and help them when they need it. That's all I'm asking.

The school system is underfunded preventing it from being reformed and made more efficient. This leads to many teens getting depression. Time when humans are their most vulnerable as teenagers because we're hormonal and sensitive is the time when we are most stressed. Not a good mix.
