A couple of weeks ago I told the Bible study group I'm in that I've been dealing with clinical depression and asked them to pray for me. The response was awkward and caring. This morning I bumped into a woman from that group and she pulled me aside and whispered that she also suffers from depression. She told me that she's on medication. Or, no, she didn't tell me -- she mouthed it without sound.
A few other women I know have "confessed" to depression, or told me that someone close to them deals with depression.
I definitely understand the inclination to guard privacy related to mental health, but this seems counter-productive.
