Dr. Honey Carandang gave a lecture to around 100 students of Assumption College on How to be happy again. During her talk, she discussed the basics of depression and how to recognize the symptoms of this mental illness. However, she also stressed that depression is a highly treatable and preventable disease.
Many people think that once people are depressed, there is no hope for them. This is a misconception that must be rectified. Depression is an illness- similar to the flu. Anyone and everyone can be at risk of depression. The public must be aware that it is very possible to be happy again.
