It goes without saying that there is a lot more awareness about mental health conditions now than there used to be, but that there is still a long way to go before stigma is eradicated.

According to the World Health Organisation, one in four people in the world will be affected by mental health or neurological disorders at one point in their lives, and approximately 450 million people are currently suffering from such disorders, placing mental illness as one of the leading causes of ill-health worldwide.

Now, people have been sharing how they deal with depression on Twitter, and it goes without saying that some of the answers could really help other people who may be suffering.

Some said they prefer to say they 'battle' depression.

Others said they 'chase the light'.

Some people try and help others.

And that if they are feeling it, then they know it will pass.

Take comfort in not being the only one.

Asking for help and taking your medication.

Something as simple as taking a walk with your kids.
