“My experience of dealing with my depression was one that would change my life forever.

After attempting to take my own life in 2014 I soon realised that suicide was not the way to deal with my depression.
Every single person should be heard, no one should have to suffer in silence.

I was more aware of watching the actions of someone who is depressed. Their demeanor and slight attitude change to the outlook on things, I tended to notice the way people are acting on social media would be a big giveaway to people who are depressed.
In conclusion to the situation I was in even the most minimal amount of depression can spiral very fast. But there’s always somebody to talk to regarding any depressed feelings, even when you may think that there’s no one there to talk to you.”
