What is depression?
Depression is a common mental disorder that presents with depressed mood, loss of interest or pleasure, feelings of guilt or low self-worth, disturbed sleep or appetite, low energy, and poor concentration. These problems can become chronic or recurrent and lead to substantial impairments in an individual's ability to take care of his or her everyday responsibilities. At its worst, depression can lead to suicide, a tragic fatality associated with the loss of about 850 000 lives every year.
Depression is the leading cause of disability as measured by YLDs and the 4th leading contributor to the global burden of disease (DALYs) in 2000. By the year 2020, depression is projected to reach 2nd place of the ranking of DALYs calcuated for all ages, both sexes. Today, depression is already the 2nd cause of DALYs in the age category 15-44 years for both sexes combined.
Depression occurs in persons of all genders, ages, and backgrounds.

"What is the love of truth? It's something that makes fun of the manque a être [lack in being]
of truth. We could call this lack in being something else-a lack of forgetting, which reminds
us of its existence in the formations of the unconscious. It is nothing that is of the order of
being, of a full being in any way. What is the indestructible desire Freud speaks of at the
end of his Traumdeutung? What is this desire that nothing can change, or deflect, when
everything is changing? The lack of forgetting is the same thing as the lack in being, since
being is nothing other than forgetting. The love of truth is the love of this frailty whose veil
we have lifted, it's the love of this that truth hides, and which is called castration."
Jacques Lacan, 1970
