    Socio-economic data is based on hard facts. The “number of people unemployed” is straightforward to measure. But how can you be sure a particular person is depressed? Counsellors might be happy with BDI results but would politicians or Paxman?Maybe a hard measure would be the suicide rate. If, say, you had a drive for mental health in Bristol and the suicide rate halved then that would make the front-page news and counselling would be taken more seriously.

    I suggest you listen to last fridays “news quiz” from Radio4

    If people can say that about depression and such experiences you’ve got no chance.
