Depression has no face but Depression is for real. Depression Survivors come out strong and relate with others. Sharing a Real Story because we live in a real world even though the mode of presentation is Virtual.
As many of you know that I have started with a Mental Health Awareness Series named Humanity ki Chain on my YouTube Channel as a medium to promote Mental Health Awareness and also give a platform to the Depression Survivors to present their story and inspire others.
As per statistics, 90% people don’t take Mental Health seriously, they think mental health is something they should not talk about but it is very important we talk about it, as it directly affects our physical health as well.
People have a habit of ignorning mental health or avoid seeking help for the fear that they would be called as mentally ill or they would be judged, labeled. But the fact is, it is as important as our Physical fitness.
It is just like when we fall ill , cold, cough, fever, we take medical supervision, Same way a proper medication, care and the feeling that it will heal with time and our loved ones are always there to help and support us, will surely cure depression and any Mental distress.
While some people choose to come out open and speak about their problems, there are few who still prefer to be a silent warrior. But a story is a story if it is worth inspiring others.
I will be presenting what I all get in the form of a blog post which could act as a source of inspiration and motivation to the readers and a message to the ones who are struggling that, YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

It is sad to see that society see depression, anxiety or any mental illness with prejudice. There is a lot of stigma attached to it, which we need to break and it is possible only when we will collectively speak about it.
