How can Depression be Prevented?

The World Health Organization (WHO) predicts that Depression will become the second most serious health issue in the world by the year 2020.

Yet I believe that depression is preventable, not just on an individual basis but also at a National and International level.

If you are reading this question I welcome your opinion and suggestions on this topic especially how you think depression can be prevented.

I am seeking 'Crowd Wisdom'.

1.Take a rest when you are tire. A bath, a good sleep, a comfortable walk may help.
2.Don't always sit in front of your computer. Do more exercise (very important).
3.If you feel depressed, find a right person to talk to.

Thank you LelaW.
Rest, good sleep, more exercise, less sitting and someone to talk to are important when it comes to dealing with depression.

Find 2 or 3 sports you like and do them on weekly basis.
Find 2 or 3 good causes and volunteer for them.
Start cooking healthy foods.
Stop watching the hate mongering and fear mongering Big Media, specially that sewage of humanity called Fox.

Excellent suggestions 2.
Specially that of turning ON Life and liking fellow man and nature and turning OFF the depression causing hate and dark evil that pours out of right-wing Media the prime example of which is Fox.

@raminvan ...

It seems you are a very sporty person.

Your suggestions are good however they require that the individual be motivated. Unfortunately many depressed individuals lack drive and motivation.

This lack is one of the symptoms of depression. Lack of appetite for some is also a symptom of depression.

This is the sad reality.

I believe that depression can be prevented by staying as mentally active as possible which includes trying out new hobbies, participating in family and social activities and keeping a positive attitude at all times!

Yes, these are very good points. I totally agree with them.
I would also add to your good list:
1- Stop watching Hate-Mongering Fear-Mongering right-wing Media such as Fox
2- Start reading Liberal media which spreads what is good about Humans (about US)

@ TheLawmowerMedic ... I like what you say, it seems like good prevention for alzheimer's too.

@exexvina1974 ... Watching negatively focused media is certainly detriment to good mental health as has been mentioned here many times.

@TheLawnMowerMedic ... What you say is good however depression is a very complex state and the individual can be incapacitated to do some, or any of those things you suggested.

I mostly agree with you about socializing, it is very important to prevent this! However sometimes it is not enough and in these cases I would also add that someone who is depressed should try to find a good Psychiatrist and/or someone to talk with...

THE ROOT CAUSE OF DEPRESSION ARE THE WORRIES, NEGATIVITY ATTACKING THE INDIVIDUAL PERSON

@baldevbhatia ... Point well taken. Is there any suggestion on how this can be overcome on a mass scale?

Manfred009, exexvina1974 and others have already pointed out that negativity, fear and worries are propagated by 'Hate-Mongering Fear-Mongering right-wing Media."

Unfortunately, the prediction by W.H.O about 2020 is not only SAD, but also very realistic.
Millions of people are alarmed by the global "cancer" we call DEPRESSION.
There are many contributing factors to this PERNICIOUS GLOBAL SYNDROME.
SOME OF THE PROBLEMS WE FACE EVERYDAY ARE: INTERMINABLE WARS, INNOCENT MEN, WOMEN, CHILDREN AND BABIES, ARE BOMBED TO DEATH REGULARLY, THE CRIME RATE RISES ALARMING, DIVORCES HAVE BECOME VERY COMMON, DEPRESSION IS OFTEN CURED WITH ILLEGAL NARCOTICS, MANY ACCIDENTS ARE CAUSED BY DRIVERS WHO ARE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF DRUGS, ETC.
Kind regards,

Prophet, you are mainly right. But lets keep in mind who is doing the " INNOCENT MEN, WOMEN, CHILDREN AND BABIES, ARE BOMBED TO DEATH REGULARLY". It is 99.99% done by USA/UK/Israel True Axis of EVIL. So as Global Citizens, it is our Job to stand against these War Mongers and spread the message of Peace and Trade & Education & LOVE against these right-wing War Mongers that have control of US, via control of US Media from ABC to CNN to MSNBC to Fox to Google to Hollywood, etc.

Prohp & Vince, I am with you guys. We need to stand up against Satanic Forces that have taken control of US Media & Gov, and are bringing death and destruction upon Country after Country, from 2 Bush Wars, to 7 Obama Wars and now Trump is promising all the Obama_Bush Wars and adding to it a Nuclear War on North Korea too! I ask you: Where are the Mass Multi Million People demonstrations against these Wars??? Just like there were such demonstrations against Vietnam War. WHERE!!!

Yes, to avoid Depression shut down the right-wing Media in USA, from CNN to ultra right-wing Fox, to ultra lunatic right-wing Web sites, all funded by Wall Street DARK Money. Only then will we stop the Wars and Misery that they bring about, and the resulting Depression. And keep in mind that the right-wing Media in USA, aka FAKE News, is not limited to CNN, Fox, etc. but it also includes Hollywood, Google, etc.. To see these points check out:
