    are vs were

    The new research shows that the people who succeed at beating depression and stay depression free have these essentials in place.

    Long gone is the idea that people are born "Prozac deficient"…

    …if you had symptoms of depression, you went to a physician. The physician prescribed you an antidepressant and sends you on your way.

    Shouldn't it be were instead? Thanks.
