Depression affects more than 350 million people globally, regardless of gender, age, race, religion, or socioeconomic status.
You Are Not Alone.
In my early twenties, I was struggling. I was tired no matter how much sleep I got. I was sad for no reason, and when I wasn’t sad I was irritable. And I had lost interest in singing and playing sports that used to bring me joy.
It took me a while to realise it, but I was suffering from depression! Once I realised this, I decided to find out why I was feeling this way and how I could change it. This lead me on a long road of research, experimenting, and ultimately, recovery.
What I found out along the way is that there are a lot of people struggling with these same issues that I was having. Far more people than I expected, actually. But despite how many people deal with these feelings all the time, it’s just not something we really talk about.
And that’s why I started The Undepression Project. It’s a space to share what I’ve learned through my own research and recovery, as well as through listening to others’ stories of healing. It’s a way for you and me to talk about depression and how difficult life can be, but also find hope that it can get better.
Together, we can build a community where mental health is just as important as physical health.
