Let me rejig your sentence into clearly understood English:

"Depression" is a life-threatening disorder because of a general failure
to understand what it is. 

There seems to be an implication that if only it were understood what
depression was then it wouldn't be life-threatening. Please enlighten
us. I can hardly wait.
