Why is it important for people to know about depression?

  • The reason why I think it is important for people to care for the people who have depression is because there is a lot of kids, teens, and adults who have depression and they need someone to be there for them when they are sad or when they don't know how to clam their anger down. The kids who have depression need their parents to be there so when they are sad their parents ask them why they are sad that is one of the reasons why I think it is important for people to care for them.
