  • No, it doesn't and if someone thinks that falling in love is going to make everything okay again, I don't think they understand the way mental illness works. It isn't something that gets turned off and on cause you met prince charming, it's something that you have to actively fight against. Being in love and having that person there is incredibly valuable and it makes fighting depression or any other mental illness a hell of a lot easier because that support is exactly what you need, I can say that from experience, but it doesn't just get rid of everything and suddenly you'e cured.

  • It definitely does not unfortunately. If it cures someone's depression then they didn't have depression.

  • Depends, is the love with the person healthy?
    Because love may cause depression, love may cure it. Depends on the people involved.

  • I voted for no, but did you mean love from someone else? if it's so, no. But if it's about loving yourself, accepting yoursel, your past, present and future, etc, yes, self-love can cure depression

  • No, it really doesn't. Love isn't a medication or an effective treatment for anything. If you're depressed, see a doctor.

  • I would love to say yes. But I don't think so. I mean in some cases yea sure but sometimes leaving what you love behind and letting it be free might break your heart but also cure you.

    • I'm not sure about that. I think heartbreak and sadness alone causes illness. I read an article once that stated people who were more social and had a larger group lived longer and had less illnesses. I think if you feel loved and have love in your life, you'll be happier. And your mentality is related to your physical health. It goes without saying it has a huge impact on a healthy mental state.

    • Yes, you get asbestosis because you don't have enough love in your life. Okay, Tom Cruise.

    Be aware.
