The cost of treatment for people with depression is staggering

Depression is the second leading cause of death after cancer, and more than 200,000 people commit suicide each year due to depression. So do you know how much the monthly medical expenses for depressed patients are? Severe patients spend tens of thousands of yuan per month to treat depression. At this year's two sessions, some representatives suggested that depression should be included in medical insurance, and netizens expressed their support. Because depression medicine is really expensive. For mild depression, the doctor prescribes medicine to take at home, starting at 1,000 yuan per month, and more than 2,000 to 3,000 yuan per month~ It does not seem to be very expensive, but this medicine is taken for a long time, for six months or even several years! The above mentioned is severe depression, or even more serious enough to have suicidal tendencies, which requires hospitalization. The medical expenses start at 10,000 yuan per month. According to a family member of a patient with severe depression, it is 15,000 yuan per month, which is unimaginable. Therefore, it is a very good policy to include depression medication in medical insurance. So don't pay too much attention to other people's eyes when you suffer from depression. After all, depression is a mental illness, a disease, not an emotion. We need to treat it in time and get better faster, and the cost of treatment is relatively low. May we all have a tolerant heart, accept patients with depression, and help them get out of the haze better.
