Giving Voice to Depression is a crowd-funded podcast that will feature personal stories about what depression feels like, what you can do to support someone who is suffering, why stigma is dangerous, what survivors can teach us about suicide, and how widely-varying the experiences of the illness can be. We are not therapists or experts. But, like many, we battle depression and have lost family members and friends to its overwhelming darkness. It’s in their honor that we began this project. Our website and funding campaign launch 2/28/17. Please spread the word so this potentially life-saving information can reach the most possible people.
