First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out -- Because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out -- Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me -- and there was no one left to speak for me…
-Martin Niemoller

Never again, Again and again.

1942. Jews and Romani are crammed into a ghetto where they die of disease and starvation. This was no isolated countryside; the ghetto ran through the busy streets of Warsaw, as citizens went about their daily tasks. No one spoke up.

The Dangers of Medicalizing Depression

By Liat Krawczyk, Oct 7, 2009 3:16 PM

 Tomorrow, October 8, 2009 is National Depression Screening Day, and sites all over the nation and internationally will be offering free depression screenings. According to Mental Health America, clinical depression is a common medical illness that affects more than 19 million American adults each year. But what is depression, how do we understand it here in the U.S., and does the world share our view?

It is doubtful that any doctor in the U.S. would take a patient seriously if they claimed to suffer from “Sore Neck Syndrome”. Nor would they nod understandingly if a patient complained that ants are creeping in their brain. While these symptoms and diagnoses may seem ridiculous to us, feelings of sadness, hopelessness and social relationships have dramatically different meanings and forms of expression around the world.
