NY Times Article on depression in developing nations

I wanted to share this interesting article about the prevalence of depression in countries where poverty is rampant and often there is political strife.  Not surprising that depression rates are high when people are impoverished, feel they have no way out and may be unable to express thier views for fear of govenment persecution.  I see this routinely in the clients I meet with.
