Of course: how many of us know someone affected by them?
I had a coworker. He was quiet, always depressed. His whole life was depression. He got tired of it and went to a psychiatrist. He was prescribed medications. He took them but did not like the side-effects. He stopped taking the meds. Then he put a gun to his head and killed himself.
He didn't want to kill himself. He wanted to IMPROVE himself, make himself better.
But he was given a death sentence by his doctor. Who probably shrugged and added his name to a roster for the statisticians...
