Obstacles to Treatment of Clinical Depression
We, the Depressed, in our darkest hours
No energy to move
No reason to live
No will to survive
No hope in a cure
No reason to try.
We roam the earth as the living dead
Wanting only to extinguish
That persistent heart that beats,
That ceaseless breath that enters,
That pain that never relents.
Every cell of our being wants to die,
Yet Do We Live.
Of People with Clinical Depression as
Statistics vary but here you can get
the general idea of the problem:
33%, 50%, 75% are not diagnosed or treated
75% don't ask for help or try to get treatment
50% of cases are not recognized by doctors
75% who are being treated are undertreated
In other words, Most
People with Clinical Depression
are not asking for treatment,
are not getting treatment, or
are not getting adequate treatment.
