(ANSA) - Milan, October 9 - Depression affects men and
women, rich and poor - it does not make distinctions.
One of the most common psychiatric disorders in the world
is the target of an initiative organized by the psychiatrists of
Fatebenefratelli hospital in Milan for World Mental Health Day
on Wednesday.
The psychiatrists are calling their initiative "Attaccati
al Tram!" which in Milanese dialect means "Deal with it!"
In this case the phrase is meant as an invitation to the
depressed to open themselves up and share their suffering -
getting on a tram that leaves at 14:30 local time from Piazzale
Segesta and arrives in Piazza Novembre at 17:30.
Actors and musicians will take part in the awareness
demonstration.
"Depression unfortunately is seen as a fault not not be
confessed and is experienced with embarrassment and shame," said
Claudio Mencacci, director of the psychiatric department of
Fatebenefratelli hospital and president of the congress of the
Italian Society of Psychiatrists currently meeting in Milan.
"In truth, it is an illness like any other and needs to be
treated".
