Sometimes a picture says more than words can. And when it comes to depression, words often fail. Depression is often defined as sadness, but it’s more than that: it’s an all-consuming event that effects every part of your body and mind, and drags you down to the depths of despair. It is pain, it is loss, rejection, despondence, hopelessness.
But there is hope, and no matter how low depression brings you, it is treatable. If you or someone you know is struggling with this, you can text ‘Go’ to the Crisis Text Line at 741-741. It’s free and confidential, and someone is available to talk to you 24/7. Visit their website at www.crisistextline.org for more information.
You can also call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (800-273-8255) or National Alliance Mental Illness (800-950-6264) for support and local referrals.
