While I’ve known a handful of people throughout my life that were open about their battle with depression, I truly had no idea that as many as 1 in 10 people will suffer from it at some point in their lifetime (1). Not only that, but depression can fuel other disorders like chronic anxiety and even substance abuse – and vice versa (2).
I can’t help but think that I or even someone I love may someday succumb to depression, so for the sake of my family, I decided to take action. I built the following list of resources to share with others, because who knows how many people may quietly be fighting this illness?
