In the 20-year period from 1917 to 1945, Australia’s population expanded by 12.5 per cent.
But the population density of our cities grew by more than four times that.
How did our cities grow and change over that period?
As well as increasing population, the urbanisation of the 20s and 30s created a number of social problems that have become the bedrock of our national psyche.
One of the greatest, and most enduring, was a massive surge in the incidence of depression.
It was the worst epidemic of the Victorian era and has become a major issue in modern times.
It peaked in the late 1930s and the early 1940s and, over the next several decades, caused significant social disruption.
By the mid-50s, it had become so severe that some Australian towns were so overwhelmed by the problem that they were forced to close.
Depression became more severe over the decades, particularly during the depression that hit Australia in the mid 1960s, with the average Australian now living with a disability.
Depression was not just a problem for Australians; it was a problem to the world, as well.
The United States, Japan, China, Russia and South Korea all suffered from depression during the 20st century.
A study of over one million people from 30 countries found that the prevalence of depression increased by around 12 per cent during the 1950s and 1960s.
Australia’s depression rate peaked in 1962, with nearly one in 10 people reporting it.
By 1963, depression had risen to more than three in 10 Australians, and by 1970, the rate had more than doubled.
It reached its highest level in 1983, with almost one in three Australians reporting it at the time.
Depression has been an ongoing problem for Australia since the industrial revolution and has affected the entire population.
It has been the cause of many major social and economic problems, and it has been a major source of social anxiety, including depression.
The prevalence of depressed people is high, particularly in disadvantaged communities and ethnic minorities.
Depression is a common side effect of drugs and alcohol, and many people do not get the medication they need.
The high rates of depression in the community and its impact on health have led some experts to say that depression is a public health crisis.
Depression can lead to physical and mental health problems, including suicide, and is often the cause for suicides.
While depression has been around for centuries, it became an epidemic in the last century and has been exacerbated by the rise of the internet.
Depression and drug use became the major sources of internet news and entertainment.
It became more widespread in the 1960s and 1970s, but it was not until the late 1990s that it was officially recognised as a mental illness.
It now has a name that is used for people who are depressed and has also been given the nickname “internet depression”.
We are living through the worst depression ever recorded.
We have been living in a state of chronic and permanent stress, and we are in the midst of a crisis of depression, a crisis that is causing enormous psychological and physical harm to Australians.
What can be done to reduce the prevalence and the burden of depression?
The government has recognised depression as a public-health crisis and it is making important steps to address it.
In 2012, the Prime Minister announced the National Depression Strategy and a $200 million fund to support health professionals, mental health organisations and families dealing with depression.
There is also the National Mental Health Partnership Fund, established in 2017.
These two actions, together with the recent national strategy, are working to reduce depression, while improving the health and wellbeing of Australians.
The government also supports the development of new and better treatments and supports mental health services.
The Australian Psychological Society has also supported the creation of a national Depression Strategy that will help the Government to reduce rates of suicide, which it has previously identified as a significant cause of the public health problem.
The Government is also taking steps to promote community-based support and rehabilitation of depressed Australians.
This is the most effective way to deal with depression, and has proven to be the best solution for people with depression as well as those with chronic illnesses.
We know that when people get help they feel better, and they tend to be more able to manage problems.
So the Government is making sure that all Australians who are experiencing depression get the help they need, including mental health professionals.
There are also some other measures in place that can help to reduce this problem.
There was a substantial reduction in the use of alcohol and tobacco, which has led to a reduction in depression and alcohol-related problems.
It is also helping to reduce suicides.
But, despite all these steps, depression is still a problem that affects Australians.
It’s a serious illness that can have devastating effects on health and well-being, and can lead people to suicide, suicide attempts, alcohol misuse and other serious issues.
The Victorian government has introduced a number public health measures over the past three decades to address depression, including: making alcohol and drug misuse more readily available, increasing
