Bringing Depression Out In The Open [VIDEO]

Many people throughout the world suffer from depression in one form or another. In fact, in the United States “major depressive disorder affects approximately 14.8 million American adults, or about 6.7 percent of the U.S. population age 18 and older, in a given year,” according to the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance.

My father was diagnosed with Manic Depression in his early 50′s and tried to keep this secret from others his whole life. However, as Rick Springfield and the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health demonstrate in this video, depression doesn’t have to be a secret.

You can reach out for the help you need and lead a productive, healthy, satisfying life. The question will be, “Are you willing to do the work to make it happen?” Watch this inspiring yet introspective account from Rick Springfield and see what you can apply to yourself or someone you know.
