THE GREATEST 'JOINT' ON OFFER

When will 'depressed' people learn that the greatest 'joint' on offer is the exhilaration of cherishing their children. 

I have worked in mental institutions and I have supported the severely depressed. My comment is not directed at those clinically identified to be at risk, hence in part the use of inverted commas. It is to those who coin a 'depressed' diagnosis all too easily and who jump to swallow, almost as a trophy, as many anti-depressants as the doc will provide or resort to drugs or alcohol instead of facing as adults the reality of life. The article states Gemma's  recent dependency was triggered by the loss of a boyfriend. Children are eternal jewels. Boy/girl friends come and go.
