People that are unable to express their feelings are more likely to express depression. Depression is not necessary a stage going through people with mental illness, but rather anyone that is unable to express themselves. Depression is a condition which a person feels unimportant, sad, and hopeless. Studies have shown that those who developed drug problems were more likely to show depression.

Depression is a mental illness that carries a negative stigma. Thus, no one wants to talk about depression, and as a result, the people who suffer from depression often do not receive the help that they need in the way they need to be helped. In his speech “Confessions of a Depressed Comic”, Kevin Breel discusses his own depression and the fact that depression is not discussed enough in today’s society. Breel believes that depression needs to be talked about more as it has become a more major problem nowadays. He also feels that the negative stereotype attached to depressed individuals needs to disappear. Through his unique point of view and clever diction, Breel gets this point across in a clear and meaningful manner.

Depression is an actual psychological illness that involves more than a feeling associated with sadness, grief, loss, and other “seemingly depressing” events or circumstances.
For example, any untreated major depression problem seriously effects any person. Unfortunately, most of the people who suffer from these mental illnesses or substance use disorder deny they have a problem. In fact, most of the time, they are the last to recognize they have a problem, and admit that they need help. Any mental illness or substance use problem which is left untreated eventually jeopardizes the patient’s safety and health, and even threaten the afflicted person’s life.
Many people in our society refuse to think that mental illness is something real or that it affects many people. Mental illness is something that is looked over and never gets any real attention. Many people are not able to get help because they don’t have the resources or it is considered to feminine. “The C-Word in the Hallways” by Anna Quindlen and the book, The Catcher in the Rye, by J.D. Salinger and the movie Dead Poets Society, explore society’s attitude towards teenage mental health.
