In this deeply insightful episode of our podcast, we are joined by Liz, who shares her personal journey through various types of depression. With candid honesty, clarity and vulnerability, Liz opens up about her experiences, shedding light on the complexity of mental health struggles and the power of supportive friendships.
At the heart of this episode lies Liz’s reflections on the pivotal role that caring friends can play in our journeys towards naming, understanding and accepting our depression. She recounts how, despite being unaware of her own condition, a friend’s keen observation and compassionate intervention helped her recognize the signs of depression within herself. Likewise, Liz was able to extend that same support to another friend who had yet to name her own struggles until Liz gently suggested it might be depression.
As Liz’s story unfolds, listeners are inspired to cultivate deeper connections, foster open dialogue, and create environments of compassion and understanding where individuals can find solace and support on their journey towards healing.
