This is a hard pill to swallow, but our society is still not particularly welcoming towards those who walk around with scars.

We are encouraged to not be as open about our wounds and fears. It is this idea that makes us a little less welcoming towards those with mental health issues.

This is why we create this video to raise awareness on depression and mental health! To let you know that it’s okay and you’re not alone! Depression is a serious mental illness.

Despite its severity, many people choose to handle it on their own. Some people bottle up their emotions for years and try to remedy themselves because they fear being stigmatized or rejected.

Although those with depression sometimes exhibit certain behavior patterns, depression looks and feels different for everyone.

If you notice some of these symptoms in someone you love, be compassionate, offer to listen without judgment, and if they ask, help them seek professional help.

This video is created for educational purposes and awareness around different topics. Video may or may not be able to go fully in-depth in such a limited time.

Please seek out a professional if you need help.

If you care about mental health, please read studies about blood pressure drugs that could help reduce depression, and taking this supplement once a day may reduce anxiety.
