To the Editor,

Our son was too embarrassed to see a psychiatrist. He thought drugs were a crutch. After many years of suffering from depression, he took his own life. How dare you print an article poking fun at this disease ["National Depression Day," October 21]! Someone else's son may read it and be ashamed to get help. I can't bear that thought.

Mrs. Thomas Hutchins
