For appointment information
Depression is common, but it’s also common for people to freak out and not know how to support a friend. Below, I’ve listed a few ways in which you can help a friend with depression.
Writing and journaling is a cathartic, therapeutic experience. I started a journal when I was first diagnosed with Bipolar disorder. It helped me accept the illness, and work through the ups and downs of living with mental illness.
I’m a mental health writer and advocate and often find myself telling people to ‘reach out’ when they’re struggling. I stress how honesty and openness are important, that you can’t move forward without sharing your story with the people closest to you.
