While I found this story to be very inspiring,

I would like to note that it is possible it could be triggery for some,

the writer describes her struggle with self-injury and suicide.


  This April 22, 2013 article on the Cabrini College Loquitur website talks about one woman’s struggle with mental illness, she describes what things were like for her as a teen, but then also goes on to explain that she can’t imagine going through life differently then she has.


“Depression: Out of The Shadows” on PBS

  I watched what I would call apowerful program on PBS called, “Depression: Out of the SHadows”.  It describes various types of depression along with a variety of treatments that are used now and may be used in the future.  Folks from all different walks of life were interviewed, from a gang member, to a corporate CEO, a mother with post pardum depression, and even some teens and college age kids.  PBS has made a huge amount of imformation relating to the program available on their website, if you want to check out the program and find ou when it’s airing, along with background and other tidbits about the show and it’s topic.  Please visit “Depression:  Out of The Shadows”  on http://pbs.org
