Depressing role model

So, an article in the Telegraph that says, basically, that people are far too quick to diagnose depression when what it really is is a bit of a grump. Fair point - people are far too quick to medicalise such things, with ADD being an obvious case in point. But who have they got to illustrate the healthy, normal nature of goold old-fashioned British miserabilism? Tony Hancock. Who killed himself after a lifetime of alcoholism and depression.
You've got to think there has to be a better example.
