Something that has been studied for many years and backed up with working evidence. Depressed people have been treated or managed without them visiting a church or knowing a pastor.

Depression happens when you lack some B vitamins.

The good news is that it can be reversed and you become normal again when you take Vitamin B complex.⛑

Yes you heard me well. That tiny and cheap drug is the cure for depression but then, why are Doctors hiding it from us??��

Now that you know, just walk into any pharmacy and grab your own.

According to Ozy.com report; On Depression in Nigeria

Nigeria is by far Africa’s most depressed country already, with 7 million people diagnosed with the condition, according to WHO. … The National Depression Report, conducted by Joy, Inc., surveyed people about their feelings of happiness and Depression across Nigeria’s 36 states.

What To Do When Depressed? (READ)

On almost every social media heart breaks I thought this was due to lack of financial stability, but then I saw a lecturer following the route, it dawn on me that it was never about money. Depression is a, and it has a lot to do with every area of our life…starting from the everyday decisions we make, the attitude of people around us, how often we hear the word NO, and much more.

But for whatever reason, suicide should never be an option! Killing yourself means you’re a failure, a coward, an ingrate, a careless, a thoughtless, visionless, purposeless, and a very selfish person!

There is always a wide range of alternatives, options, and solutions to your depression rather than killing yourself.

If you think you’re poor, you’re not the poorest; if you think you’re rich, you’re not the richest; if you think you’re pretty, you’re not the most beautiful; if you feel you have problems, you will sober when you hear the problem of others. Whatever situation you are in life, there are always millions of people behind you! The fact that you don’t know or see others with the same problem doesn’t mean you’re the only one in the world who have such issues.

If you ever thought of suicide, you’ve only decided to transfer your problems or depression to others; you didn’t solve the problem!

1. What about the people who are supposed to look up to you?
2. What happens to the people you suppose to help succeed in life?
3. How about the people you’re supposed to be there for?
4. What happens to all of these people when you’re dead?

Before you think about suicide once again, bear it in mind that you’re only creating additional problems with the one on the ground. Be a survivor, look for solutions, seek alternatives, change location, talk to people, and stop isolating yourself!

There is a gazillion of ways to solve a problem, why create more and suffer your family by committing suicide instead of solving the problem and proof to everyone you’re a winner and not a loser? You can’t win if you quit remembering? Victory is not for quitters! Wake up and bounce back! You can do it! You’re strong! You’re courageous! Don’t allow your memory to be erased and replaced with negative thoughts! There is a talent buried in you, dig it up, and show the world!

We need you and your family needs you more!

This is pure crap! People who are depressed cannot think rationally because their thinking pattern has been taken over by negativity. Most don't even know what they are doing

All that has been written here can only be comprehended by a rational mind. Do you know that multi millionaires do go depressed?

Just pray you are not a victim of deoression. Ask God for his grace and mercy.(Heb 4:16)

Until you have been through it you can't explain how it feels

But you end up not proffering a solution..yes u actually capture the real symptoms of depression.But what i want you to understand is depressed people don't commit suicide because they want to end their lives,but they do it just to end their suffering..If you have never been depressed is very difficult to understand what the depressed are going through.This year makes it 11years since i got depressed.it may surprise you to know that for this this 11years i have never felt happy for 1 minute..i lost interest in all the activities i once enjoy a lot.so tell me,am i actually living a life? Though i will never commit suicide but such action would never mean ending my life,because the life is already miserable....But like i said,no suicide for me,i have been fighting,i will continue to fight..Anyway thanks for remembering us.

my own advice is, the best way to fight depression is to:
1) take snipercin' 40ml and hypodine 25ml;
recommended dose is once daily;
if symptoms persist for 5hrs an extra dose is also recommended, which is likely not.

NOTE: An overdose is recommended in case of acute depression, infact for a more serious depression, taking the full bottle of snipercin' is mostly recommended' for effective and quick relief.

A lot of factors not listed here could cause depression and anxiety such as unemployment, economic downturns, job losses, heartbreak especially when it's as a result of not living up to your expectations due to loss of job or unfavorable economy, death of loved one, failure in your academics, business misfortunes, choosing the wrong career, etc.

I view depression as a part of life....Like everything else it will pass away..however if you need to cope there are medications that can help with that with minimal side effects....some over the counter mood/stress medications that work really well just as much as the prescribed ones. Also if you have true/genuine friends that you can confide in, that might help!! Never feel ashamed to accept you are depressed and seek help....it's in no way an indictment on your strength as an individual!!!!
Oh by the way.....working out (Running and lifting weights) does work as well....If you can muster up the strength and motivation..

Any depressed person who wants to buy N500 sniper should first think of buying 2 bottles of cold beer and drink away their worries.
What happens the next day that person is out of cash to buy that drink to while away his/her problems. Sorry bro. You tried. But going into drinking won't sort out the problem. It might work out for you. Probably not for everyone

. Yeah you are right. Poverty is actually not the cause of it all. But let's say the truth to ourselves. We all know the primary reasons why people opt to commit suicide in Nigeria . Majority of them are relatively related to high rate of hardship in our country. We are suffering. So some opt to commit suicide in order to end their miserable lives.
