This meme is false. Cashews are a source of tryptophan, which is needed for the body to produce serotonin - but it is in no way a significant a source of serotonin on its own, and even still, it’s not the same thing as a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (which is not, as some may falsely believe, simply a pill full of serotonin). The chemical compounds of tryptophan and serotonin are different, not to mention that SSRIs don’t really work that way.
If you share this image, you need to understand that the armchair psychiatry that you learned from a meme could cost someone THEIR LIFE.
Leave science to scientists, and quit it with the religious belief in anything natural because it doesn’t always work. I have a lot of crunchy tendencies, but there’s a point where it stops being reasonable and starts being dangerous and deluded.
If you don’t have depression, and I’m not going to phrase this nicely: shut the fuck up about how other people should treat theirs. It’s not just a matter of being sad, nor is it solely a case of having low serotonin. Doing this is a dangerous game, it’s not your place, and you clearly don’t understand what you’re saying or the potential consequences of your actions. Mental illnesses are just as valid as physical illnesses, and the consequences of poor treatment are just as severe.
Anti-depressants are not always the right or only treatment, but they are frequently lifesaving medications. Cashews are not, and suggesting that they might be safer than a medication that you don’t need or even remotely understand the chemical composition of is reckless and uneducated.

Also, I’d like to point out that a month’s worth supply of SSRI is cheaper than the equivalent supply of cashews. Not only do we have the beautiful example of classic neurotypical jackassery, but we’ve got a great stealth helping of classism, too.
To put it simply: to these people, you’re only worth saving if you’ve got the money.

Shit.  A month supply of SSRI is cheaper than a freaking 16 oz. can of Cashews here!  At least with my shitty insurance.
