Depression is a cruel illness

Sir -- Depression and mental health, even to practitioners, is somewhat of an abyss. I speak as a chronic case.
We have often heard "that fella wants a good kick up the arse". I'm sorry, but this is the last thing a sufferer wants.
It's plainly obvious to me and others like me that Shane Dunphy, as his writing clearly indicates, knows nothing at all about depression.
