Emma Damare Professor Jones English 103 5 February 2018 Death Penalty: More Harmful than Helpful The death penalty has been around causing problems for decades, starting before the 1800’s and still creating issues today.

Many reach a breaking point and sink into depression – a mental health issue few of our grandparents or great-grandparents experienced, yet is so common today or perhaps people 50 or 75 years ago just didn’t talk about depression, and didn’t seek treatment for it (after all, effective treatments weren’t exactly available back then). Maybe people today are more willing to admit to their depression, and that’s why it looks like everyone is so stressed out and depressed. That's why many researchers are skeptical of the claim that mental health issues are now more common. One way to get around this problem is to look at anonymous surveys that ask about anxiety and depression. Even better, ask about symptoms of anxiety and depression – that way, people aren’t saying they are depressed outright.
