    Thank you so much for posting this and helping to remove the stigma around mental illness, especially during this difficult time of our 20’s!

    Thank you so much for taking the time to recognize and talk about depression. I went through a period of depression my junior year of college and found myself spending all my time alone and crying for no apparent reason. It took me some time to discover the root cause, but once I did, it became easier to make changes in my life to improve my mental health.

    I really appreciate you taking the time to post this interview and share your experience! So often with beautiful blogs displaying beautiful lives, we forget that life isn’t always perfect. It’s really refreshing that you address mental health issues so honestly.

    I’ve been struggling with depression since my early teens – it runs in the family. I didn’t get a formal diagnosis until I was 24, but by that point I had two suicide attempts already under my belt. That’s why it’s SO IMPORTANT to break the stigma surrounding this stuff – talk to your friends, talk to your family, be supportive in any way they need you to be (without sacrificing your own mental health, of course!).

    Medication and therapy are great for a lot of people, but if you’re like me and can’t afford health insurance (much less see a doctor or therapist) there are TONS of great apps out there for tracking and managing mental illness. Give some of them a try. And reach out to your friends, they’re supposed to be your support network so take advantage of that if you can.

    I would like to know, as a parent of a depressed male 20 something, how do you get them to go to therapy? My son is depressed and needs help but will not seek help. I’m literally at my breaking point trying to help him. I’m a college graduate who has a minor in psychology but I’m definitely not a professional. Thanks. I feel so helpless.
