This episode is a review of the past 11 episodes we’ve produced.
It’s also an opportunity to sample Giving Voice to Depression,
so you can see that while the focus is the same (depression)
the approach to each episode as different as the guests are.
Depression affects us all differently.
And the ways we describe and manage it can also differ.
But, somehow, knowing that others understand the weight of the condition
helps us believe we’re not alone and that we are understood.
There is power in shared stories.
And in just 22 minutes, you’ll get a taste of several guests’ stories
and learn about a 3-day rule for depression, how holding space and hope for a new treatment can be life-saving,
how a “silly selfie challenge” helped one guest break the negative cycle she was stuck in,
and how the suicide of a teenage son started a mother on a journey of helping other families avoid her pain.
