Listen. We all know depression isn’t fun. It’s a hard-hitting, destructive mental illness… and probably more common than you think. In growing numbers those in the spotlight are stepping forward to raise awareness for mental health issues. That’s right – even your faves have problems.
And yet, despite it all, there’s still a stigma and a lot of uncertainty surrounding what it’s like to suffer from depression, so here’s 11 questions about it all that you should NEVER be afraid to ask.
1. Is depression just feeling sad?
OBV, no. Depression is a lot more than just Monday blues or feeling a bit bummed out. For people who’ve never suffered it might be a big, confusing concept to get to grips with but being depressed is a billion times worse than just feeling sad.
