We have people on the streets who need more assistance than a prescription. We also have people who need to learn to handle reality who are given prescriptions by doctors who simply yield to the demands of the weak-minded patients.
In a SHTF world, the crazy people are going die right along with the rest of us. It seems to me, if you are interested in saving as many lives as possible, it would be prudent to not create so many crazy people to begin with.

Why are you trying to make this a female thing, by the way? Are you thinking gender or motives make a difference after the lives are lost?
I am taking an antibiotic for the next 7 days.... my sinuses are crazy

True hard core untreated clinical depression is very ugly. The person may remain functional and hold down a job, but beyond their life is not worth living. They have no desire to socialize, have sex, enjoy activities, etc... and they have a darn hard time taking care of family obligations. It can go on for years without even a tiny break. Many will turn to alcohol for temporary relief and that creates it's own set of problems. Others will sleep at every given opportunity, including all weekend to avoid conscious thought.
Now some may say "well fine they should just kill themselves" but for many that isn't an easy option because they DO have kids or other dependents.
The drugs are life savers in those situations, and for many, especially people that don't like to visit doctors and aren't regular pill poppers, they do not stay on them forever. After several months or so individuals can get off of them and remain normal.
Life is too short to live in a virtual hell for years on end when there IS a possible solution. It also isn't fair for those that live with them.

Real depression is very ugly, people can lose years of their life in a fog, and if they have small kids during that time it is horrible for the children and everyone else involved. It is like living with a zombie. People that haven't experienced it don't understand how bad it can be.
