Depression is a mental illness now being publicly addressed. Back then people never talked about this mental illness, it was thought of as a shameful thing to discuss, and those who were going through depression were embarrassed to address it.

The public is becoming more aware of depression especially when famous people have unfortunately succumbed to this illness.
