When an illness is cured, it means that the illness is gone forever and won't come back or affect that person's life again. There are some diseases we can't cure, such as diabetes.However, even diseases that can't be cured can be treated. Generally, depression is thought of as a disease that can be treated, not cured, although there are some exceptions to this rule.

Depression is the most common mental health condition in the world, with 322 million individuals worldwide dealing with depression, and 15.7 million of those individuals being in the United States, making up for almost 7% of the U.S.’s adult population. With numbers this high, it’s likely that you or someone you know has suffered from depression.
