Just when she suspected the experience was ending, things escalated to the next level.


And Ernie wasn't the only neighbor who stopped by to say hi...



Maddy's mom's students will surely be jealous!


Twitter could not handle the level of cuteness on display.


Who wouldn't want to visit Sesame Street?

TRIGGER WARNING: This article contains sensitive content about depression and mental health.

As the stigma around mental health lessens (however slowly), people are more forthcoming about the problems they are facing. One of the most common mental health issues is depression.

Depression can affect many different types of people. Factors such as gender, race, nationality, and even age have no bearing on whether someone suffers from depression or not.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), globally, "...an estimated 3.8% of the population affected, including 5.0% among adults and 5.7% among adults older than 60 years..."
