There's the usual phone, wallet, keys that always make the cut. Subtle weaponry makes an appearance in the daily luggage a good amount of the time too.

But after those few unanimously valued items come the strange things from one's past and the shameless hobby equipment.

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..."
