While I admire your optimism, I doubt humans will ever be free from mental health issues. All non-physical mental health issues stem from interactions with other humans, starting with parents, siblings, and family, then broadens out to school mates and instructors. Everyone carries baggage, often bequeathed them by earlier generations.@Lohrenswald, like others suggested, maybe a hobby might help a little? Since you are into physics, maybe have a look at interesting physics videos on youtube, or theories mentioned (not things you have to use for your own work, but possibly interesting).
Although our civilization hasn't yet evolved to the point of solving depression or so many other common and life-damaging issues, tech is already interesting and you might find areas of interest there too - eg with the various computer-based creators of art or text, available online.
Now treatment, that will improve. But I think one of the crucial changes humanity has is to stop demeaning people who have mental health issues.
