And Speaking Of Depression…

A fellow blogger posted this wonderful video days ago. Ironically, I was too depressed to watch it until this morning…

At its worst, depression can be a frightening, debilitating condition. Millions of people around the world live with depression. Many of these individuals and their families are afraid to talk about their struggles, and don’t know where to turn for help. However, depression is largely preventable and treatable. Recognizing depression and seeking help is the first and most critical towards recovery.

In collaboration with WHO to mark World Mental Health Day, writer and illustrator Matthew Johnstone tells the story of overcoming the “black dog of depression”. More information on the book can be found here: http://matthewjohnstone.com.au/

  1. Depression is a dreadful illness, I volunteer as an appropriate adult and it continues to amaze me that the “crisis team” often don’t have an out of hours service, break a leg and you get seen at A&E but have a “crisis” and you often end up in the police cells because there isn’t anyone available.
