Depending on where you live, there are support groups for depression, and many of them are free.

There are also some great self help books, and if your depression is not severe, you might be able to help yourself.

There is also counselling you can get through churches, or other community resources.

Feel free to e-mail me and I can give you some links for good books, CDs you can get from your local library.

Whatever you do, keep asking for help and support. Do not do this alone. Depression is an illness, like diabetes, or cancer, and it can be treated. Believe me, I know, I am a mental health provider, who is also a “proud client”.

It IS possible and you WILL get better.
