The recent suicides of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain, two successful and seemingly happy people have shocked the world; and they moved us to open up a dialogue about depression, suicide and mental health. Tune in for a needed conversation on what it means to be depressed. Hear the 10 things people who struggle with the depression wish you knew and learn how to support someone who is going through depression. This is a hard topic, but we hope you’ll listen. I think it’s something we could all learn from.
We didn’t want this episode to be based solely on our opinion. So, we reached out to our friends and loved ones who are suicide survivors or have struggled with depression and anxiety and asked them to share what they wished people knew. We’ll be sharing some of the things they want you to know throughout this episode. But will do so confidentially because this is a sensitive topic for many of them.
Thank you to our friend, therapist and business coach Kelly Higdon for collaborating with us on this episode.
