Depression is a mental health condition that causes feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and emptiness. It’s one of the most common mental health conditions. In fact, over 15 million adults experienced depression in 2014. Women experience depression twice the rate of men.
Research indicates that counselling is a very effective treatment for depression — with far fewer side-effects, and less risk of depression recurring after it has been treated compared to treatment medication.
Depression feels like…being under water…but not knowing your submerged.
It feels like you’re moving through life as if you’re in a haze -
but not there.
Sometimes it feels numbing.
Sometimes it feels hopeless.
Sometimes it feels anxious.
no - all the time,
it doesn’t feel like me.
it very much is. This part of me.

We all have a story.
