I'm currently recovering from a severe episode of depression and during that time I became truly aware of the stigma surrounding mental health. Society in general doesn't understand depression can affect someone and it's human nature to fear that which we don't understand. By being open and honest about mental health, Depression Army, encourages people not to be ashamed and not to feel alone whilst educating those who haven't had to deal with this illness to understand more about what it takes to fight it.
