Welcome to week three of MHM, in this one I’m talking about clinical depression, some of the symptoms, how it can occur, how mine came about and why it is I continue to suffer with it.
Some triggers may exist in this article. I speak of suicidal thoughts/thoughts, of an abusive person (psychological), or of bullying. Please keep that in mind.
Here are some links that can help you, or someone you know, cope with depression or a stressful situation.
