20. Depression Is a Disability
A disability is defined as ‘any condition of the body or impairment of the mind that makes it hard for the person who has the condition to undertake certain activities and interact with the world around them’. The WHO claims that depression is the leading cause of disability all over the world.
Many people with depression often share that their brains feel foggy or that they aren’t themselves, which is actually not a lie. It may seem strange to hear a person say that their brain isn’t working in top condition as it should but in the case of a person with depression, making the right decisions seems impossible. Patients with depression who are employed will undoubtedly find focusing and working at their optimum very hard.
