Today (4/7/17) is World Health Day according to the World Health Organization (WHO). The theme this year is Let's Talk About Depression. They have the hashtag, #LetsTalk, to commemorate the day.
From their press release:
"Depression is the leading cause of ill health and disability worldwide. According to the latest estimates from WHO, more than 300 million people are now living with depression, an increase of more than 18% between 2005 and 2015.
