    It seems natural that depression correlates with a withdrawal from the circumstances which make you unhappy.

    Many young people are depressed because they have been taught to be offended constantly.

    Or how about depression is a natural reaction to the current state of the world.
    Do human beings have free will? I can't decide.

    Also it's hilarious that you don't link to a scientific study on this, but instead it's just a Twitter post.

    Just trying to move the discussion forward .....

    Meanwhile .... in New Zealand research goes on. https://www.researchgate.net/profile...ese-issues.pdf

    Abstract ....... . A thematic analysis identified a range of priorities participants had for engaging in support online. These included the importance of establishing emotional safety; picking up subtle cues for distress; allowing the open expression of emotion; showing care; being tactful and sensitive to needs of othersand developing on-going relationships. Those designing online interventions for youth in distress can learn from the way that young people already give and receive support online. Recognising the importance that young people give to trusting relationships as a prerequisite for engagement with online support has important implications for the development of interventions which can connect with young people.
    OK it's not world wide, only 21 persons and pretty british actually.

    Still its better than gossip over twitter.

    Maybe we should be talking about trust when we talk about discussing depression with others...... maybe trust becomes a reason why we appear to turn inward when we sense we have contact and confidence problems ...

    just sayin'
