  15. Other Voices: The Connexions Newsletter - November 7, 2016
    Depression and Joy

    Resource Type: Serial Publication (Periodical)
    Published: 2016
    It's a difficult thing to measure, but there are strong reasons for believing that the number of people struggling with depression has increased significantly in recent decades.

Certainly there are individual circumstances and individual causes, but when millions of people are experiencing the same thing, we need to be looking not only at the individual, but also at the society.
