Let’s Talk About Depression: The Basics of Depression and Bipolar Disorder
Everyone experiences depression at different times in their life and it’s important to know what to look for and what to do about it. There is no one size fits all when it comes to depression.

People with depression are also afraid to seek help, which can make them more depressed.

This is completely normal and understandable. You should never shame a person for feeling this way. You should instead focus on supporting them in feeling better. If someone is in the midst of a major depression, they might not be able to understand why they are feeling the way they are. They may have a hard time seeing themselves in the same way you do. If you are in a relationship with a person who is depressed, you have to be patient. They may feel completely useless and unmotivated. They are probably still struggling with the symptoms of a bipolar or major depression.
Mental health isn’t a weakness, it’s a gift. We are all different, and having a day to remember how much is left to be happy and filled with joy again is an important part of living.
