The misdiagnosis that an individual’s depression or mental illness, is derived from something wrong with them personally, when the depression an individual is experiencing may actually be induced by living in a society that is ill or broken. The said depression is actually a healthy response of a conscious, sentient, empathetic being responding to the greater societal illness surrounding them.

If you have an idea for a neologism that represents this experience please submit it.
