When I was younger, I thought depression meant just being "sad" and it could easily be fixed. Now I know people who are truly depressed and it's way more than just sadness. There is a complexity to depression that many don't understand, I can't even admit to knowing all about it, but I know that one thing's for sure, talking about it helps.

Depression Army's idea of building a community where people can talk, relate, and learn is a very awesome thing; and bringing awareness to this issue that many people don't even notice, is an important stepping stone in society.
