Today, Eminent Psychiatrist Dr. Devendra Save clears a myth about Depression. The general attitude about depression is that it doesn’t matter if you are depressed, just control your thoughts and everything will be alright. However, that is not the case. As Dr. Save says, “In depression, one loses the ability to decide what kind of thoughts they should have. Moreover, their thoughts control them.”

Dr. Save explains, “Depression is a very real and treatable illness. But myths, misunderstandings, and stigma continue to be barriers to treatment for many and the consequences of untreated depression can be life-threatening. Understanding the facts about depression, on the other hand, can save lives. The hard fact about depression is that it takes away one’s ability to have control over their thoughts. If you witness this happening along with the other symptoms of depression, kindly reach out to a mental health professional. There are several very effective treatment options available for depression, including medications and psychotherapy.”
