Queenslanders in the dark

Posted by: 4bc.com.au | 18 April, 2012 - 8:07 AM
Depression

4BC Drive: 58% of Queenslanders wrongly believed antidepressant medication is addictive, while 30% believe it would be helpful to tell a depressed person to put on a brave face. Former Victorian Premier and Chairman of Beyond Blue, JEFF KENNETT, joins Drive to explain why Queenslanders are still in the dark over depression, as more work needs to be done to make people aware of the signs and symptoms of depression.

Blog comments Your Say

  • Some do have to work 9 to five andy for it is evident that many like yourself Andy are siting on their butts doing nothing expecting everyone else to support them. Go and get a job Andy and stop sponging off your parents for a free ride through live, that is why you Andy have nothing of any value to contribute on anything for you are simply a nothing person with nothing inside. You Andy would never have depression for you will never have way of understanding to understand what depression is about for you are truly a blank cheque of nothingness.

  • Some easy drug free ways to help beat depression: Don't stay up late, early to bed, early to rise. Go for a walk, get into the garden with some secateurs and prune your overgrown trees and shrubs. House a mess? Put on a favourite record and do some housework. Retail therapy, it's not irresponsible to spoil yourself with a little treat every once in a while, what are you working hard 9-5 for anyway? Aknowlege to yourself that you know you have the blues, allow yourself to feel the blues, but don't let yourself wallow forever. YOU can fix yourself, know that the blues are not forever, YOU are your own cure. But also know that there are people ready to help, make use of whatever resource you can find, if you want to get well.
