How to help someone who is struggling with depression

When someone is struggling with depression, even daily tasks can feel insurmountable. But there are steps you can take to help a loved one.

Fashion designer Kate Spade was found dead in her New York apartment on Tuesday, after an apparent suicide. Before her death, Spade, 55, suffered from depression, but had not received treatment, according to her sister, who spoke with the Kansas City Star.

Spade is not alone. More than 16 million American adults, or 6.7% of the adult population, have experienced at least one major depressive episode in the last year, according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America.
