Depression for BEGINNERS
Depression wipes people out. It's scary and weird. Most people aren't ready for it. I wasn't. I didn't know what was happening, where to go with it or what to do with it. I was freaking out. My friends and family didn't know what to do with it either. We were all a bit lost and it wasn't getting better.
In this lecture I talk about the onset of depression and what it felt like. Based on what I've learned since, I'll try to explain a bit about what it is, and some of the things you can do, as a sufferer or friend, to start to deal with it. Depression is something to be grappled with. You can learn how to cope with it. But when you're just starting out it can feel very hopeless. This lecture is designed for those who are just getting to grips with their demons, want to helping someone who is, or just want to know a bit more from someone who's been there.
