I support the Depression Army because gives every one struggeling with mental issues be it depression or anxiety or something else entirely a safe place to reach out to. It gives us people we can relate to. It lets us feel that we are not alone, that we matter and that we are OK just the way we are. Furthermore it opens doors and reaches out to destigmatize mental illness and helps us to be understood out there in the world, where its not always easy to relate to us.

The Depression Army is our coat of armour and motivates many of us to keep going, to move forward.

We join hands across borders, race, religion, ethnicity to always keep fighting. Dont ever give up and if you need help dont be afraid to reach out, because YOU matter.
