Depression: A Coming Out Story

A wonderful and courageously honest blog post from Shira Renee Thomas on the experience and stigma of clinical Depression. The personal (and economic) burden of psychological disorders is profound, and greater than that of any other type of disease – including diabetes, cancer, and cardiovascular illnesses! Over 350 million people worldwide suffer from Depression. Yet, we’re only now waking up to the importance of thinking of Depression and other psychological diseases as a public health crisis that requires much, much more awareness and many more resources to reduce stigma and help alleviate individual suffering.
