They can be surrounded by others and yet feel deeply, dangerously alone.... As affluence and urbanization rise in a society, rates of depression and suicide tend to go up rather than down.... People in wealthy countries suffer depression at as much as eight times the rate they do in poor countries.... The mechanism seems simple: poor people are forced to share their time and resources more than wealthy people are, and as a result they live in closer communities... Self-determination theory holds that human beings need three basic things in order to be content: they need to feel competent at what they do; they need to feel authentic in their lives; and they need to feel connected to others..."
