Where words become worlds…

Black dog days

A few years ago, the girls from East High decided to make a video on depression. The experience gave me more understanding and empathy – I had no idea that so many people suffer from it. Today, I want to share a video that, in my eyes, describes depression pretty accurately. It is not an illness that you can see on the outside. Yet, depression deeply affects millions of people every year.

The thing is, depression is not something people should be ashamed of. If you suffer from depression, and that black dog seems too big and overwhelming, you can get help, and people DO want to help.

And, if someone you know has depression, read about ways to help and be supportive. This is one of my favorite articles on that subject.

You will get through this. I know you can!
