Coping with Depression

Book Title:  Coping with Depression

Why are you volunteering:

People think that depression is a moral failing. They don't understand that the motivation to do things that might help, i.e. exercise, and positive thinking, is missing. This missing motivation controls one's world. Depression can keep you underemployed, unemployed, without a partner, homeless...It is the very spark of life that is gone.

Questions to ask:

  • What do you think when you wake up in the morning?
  • How do you try to treat your depression?
  •  How can those around you help?
