PostSubject: Depression: what if the causes are societal rather than in our heads?   Sat Feb 03, 2018 6:25 pm

Popping pills has become a panacea for depression across the Western world, in few countries more so than Australia. But what if the causes are societal rather than in our heads?



In the 1970s, a truth was accidentally discovered about depression one that was quickly swept aside, because its implications were too inconvenient, and too explosive. American psychiatrists had produced a book that would lay out in detail all the symptoms of different mental illnesses, so that they could be identified and treated in the same way across the country.

It was called the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual. In the latest edition, they laid out nine different symptoms a patient had to show to be diagnosed with depression such as decreased interest in pleasure, or persistent low mood. For a doctor to conclude you were depressed, you had to show five of these symptoms over several weeks.
