This is an opinion piece for everyone. Let's say that you know, or are aware of someone who suffers from depression or Anxiety. If they are taking some form of medication or self-medication that you KNOW has no real effect, for example people who say that wearing specific flowers or holding specific stones, do you think it is fair to tell them that it is a placebo effect, or do you feel it is NEEDED to tell them that it is a fake effect. On the other hand, if you see someone taking their own form of medicine, or having their own form of help do you think it would be uncaring or abusive to tell them that their 'medication' is nothing but their imagination?
