WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The NIMH says major depression is now the No. 1 leading cause of disability around the world.

>>>>>>I find this to be very interesting, especially for 4s. I have suffered from depression, but chose NOT to go out on disability a few years ago, rather to take Prozac and keep working.

But I think 4s who are suffering from debilitating clinical depression should know that they have the option of getting medical help, and having a psychiatrist officially declare the person disabled until the depression abates. Too many people with depression are walking around wanting to kill themselves (and many of them do) and never realizing that they have a valid medical condition that can be treated and for which they can be granted "disabled" status (which could protect you from being fired &/or get you work or government disability checks).
