BBC Three: Things not to say to someone with depression
Many people 'get it', but some just don't.
People with depression encounter all kinds of questions and assumptions about their condition.
Here, eight people discuss some of the more common things they hear about their mental health – from being told to ‘cheer up!’, to dealing with suggestions that yoga is the ‘cure’.
