Lesson 2


How to Cope with Depression

At some time in your life, you will be impacted by depression, whether it is your own, or the depression of someone else close to you.[1] In any given year, approximately 18.8 million American adults (9.5% of the population) are coping with depression,[2], 1 in 5 New Zealanders are impacted,[3], 20 percent of Australians are affected,[4], and 1 in 4 Britons experience a mental health problem (with depression being a major source).[5] Depression is serious – the World Health Organization considers that by 2020, depression will be the second leading contributor to the global burden of disease behind heart disease, with it already affecting about 121 million people worldwide.[6]
Feeling down or blue is a natural part of life when people let us down, things go wrong, or we lose people we love or the dreams we've valued. It's normal to feel sad when faced with setbacks, as we come to terms with what the setback means for us and struggle to find our way back to feeling normal again. This sadness becomes a problem when it fails to pass and we fail to bounce back. If the sadness stretches over weeks, is occurring frequently, and interferes with your ability to get on with life, interact with people, and to enjoy your life, then it's likely that you're experiencing some form of depression and it's vital to speak with your doctor quickly. Provided you're able to access information, and that you've got a good support network around you, even severe depression is a highly treatable condition.

Lesson 1

A good trick if you are unable to spell anything is to claim your misspelling is the British version. In Britain, claim it's the US spelling.
This is similar to the trick I recommend if you can’t remember how to spell practice/practise.
In the UK – and most English-speaking countries, I think - the noun has a c, and the verb has an s.
But in the US, they both have a c.

So if you can’t remember whether it’s the noun or the verb that has the s, you can just always spell it with a c, and say you were going for the American spelling.
