“According to the World Health Organization, 350 million people suffer from depression, yet at any given time, we can feel alone.” That’s the opening line for the Giving Voice to Depression podcast. And it’s true.
It was true for me, as I sat in a hotel room, 2 hours from home, preparing to die. Stigma has taught people with depression to be quiet, and we’ve learned to do that fairly well. But the Giving Voice to Depression podcast is empowering people to share their stories and come out of hiding. It’s creating a safe place to find rest for our souls and community with other people who get it.
This is a brand-new podcast, and being interviewed by Terry was a real pleasure. You’re going to love this brief, expertly produced, 13-minute interview. If you know someone who feels all alone with their mental health struggles, share this encouraging podcast with them.
