“Depression is following a pattern, that we see with other diseases, called diseases of civilization. Where these diseases are really really endemic and highly prevalent in the west and not very prevalent at all among aboriginal groups. … Our ancestors didn’t get depressed very often. Why? Because presumably, they had protective measures woven into their day-to-day lives.”
