I suffer from depression. Clinical, real deal...depression.
I have struggled with depression a couple of times in my life. I saw the signs (after they were smacking me in the face) and I sought help. Now when it comes back around... I know the warning signs and I ask for help.
The most dangerous part of depression is believing it will never get better. It always gets better... if you let it.

Let the death of Robin Williams start the discussion of depression again. LOUDLY!
At some point in their lives, 10% to 25% of women and 5% to 12% of men will become clinically depressed.

Speak up, ask questions, take care of YOU! You are NOT alone.
