    It’s really disturbing at times. I was reading an article today about a British MP who “came out” as suffering from depression and the reaction was largely negative. People saying he should step down, “get over it”, etc. Imagine their surprise when someone mentioned Churchill’s severe depression and alcoholism. That gets glossed over.

    I hope your exchange at least got your friend *thinking* about the subject, albeit in a skewed way.
