How does depression work?
How we experience depression, and how we make sense of what’s happening to us, arises not only from our inner feelings, but what our culture says those feelings should mean. And that prism of interpretation has varied widely through time and place, and continues to diverge today. It’s important to know how and why this is.

Being open about depression
Depression and suicidal feelings are more common than many of us realise. And they are never easy issues to deal with; fear of getting it wrong, making things worse or just not understanding what’s involved prevents many of us offering help where it is needed. Which is why it is so important to bring depression and suicide out of the shadows.
