Winter Blues or Something More Serious?
I'm inspired by people who share their personal struggles in an effort to help others. My friend Terry has taken her depression story public and now provides a free podcast called Giving Voice To Depression. She's happily watching the Facebook community grow knowing that even if a person doesn't have depression, they know someone who does. She believes her podcasts help people understand the condition so they know how to help themselves and/or those around them.
Terry and her sister co-host the segments which usually feature interviews with mental health professionals and intimate conversations with people who have had depression. The hosts are bright, funny, humorous, and relatable. Plus, Terry's a professional broadcaster with a voice you will enjoy listening to. The goal of the two sisters is to increase awareness about and reduce the stigma surrounding mental illness.
Some of the topics covered include: depression in the elderly, teen suicide, couples issues, empathy, and asking for help.
If you're feeling out of sorts, it may just be a case of the winter blues, or it may be something more. Depression is treatable! To learn more, visit the Giving Voice To Depression website.
