Alex Trebec: We will accept any of these questions.

1.What is the first thing most people say when they hear that you live with depression?

2. What is the last thing a depressed person wants to hear?

3. What is a way to avoid discussing your friend’s or acquaintances’s disorder?

4. What is a statement minimizing mental illness?

5. What is a fallacy concerning depression?

Depression affects an estimated one in 15 adults (6.7%) in any given year. And one in six people (16.6%) will experience depression at some time in their life.

American Psychiatric association

Percentage of Canadians who will experience depression in their lifetime: 7.9 –
8.6%

Mood Disorder Society of Canada

One in seven Australians will experience depression in their lifetime.

While these statistics are atrocious, thank goodness the statement in the title of this post is not true.
