Most people who know me have heard that I am on a mission this year. My mission is to fight against the stigma of depression and I have formalised my campaign by joining the Aspire Heroine’s Quest which starts in March.
Here I am [Caroline] in this quarter’s A Single Step magazine published by the Depression Alliance in a short article about stigma.
For all those who have been on a different planet to me over the past couple of months, here is a reminder of my Quest campaign:
My Campaign is:
To eradicate the stigma attached to mental illness in general and depression in particular.
Everyone deserves a chance.
Why should you care?
Because depression is non-discriminatory. Tomorrow it could be you or someone you care about.
Call to action:
I would like everyone to start talking openly and honestly about mental health issues and experiences of depression. Only in this way will we effect change.
