Depression has been gaining more exposure over the last few years, especially as we have learned more about it, but it is still almost a taboo topic of conversation. Many people who struggle with depression are scared to talk about their struggles and the treatments they are using. There is a huge stigma surrounding medicating to help with depression, which makes these discussions even harder. Having someone to talk to can make a huge difference for someone who struggles with depression. The most important thing that you can do for them is to listen and try to understand. You don’t have to fix the problems; you just have to not judge them.
