”Mental health is nothing to be ashamed of, but stigma and bias shame us all.” – Bill Clinton
To say we’re passionate about raising awareness of depression and fighting the stigma, is an understatement.
It’s ridiculous that in this day and age, the stigma still destroys lives. We talk openly about subjects which were once taboo yet mental illness is still brushed aside and hidden. Those with depression often feel ashamed and this prevents them from reaching out for the help they need and deserve, often having a devastating affect on their lives – they may lose friends, isolate themselves from family, risk unemployment and struggle financially.
