MakeItOk.org Is Erasing The Stigma Of Depression
Something I really enjoy is listening to podcasts. I like conversation, and exchanging ideas especially with topics I find interesting. One podcast that I just recently found is The Hilarious World of Depression. The podcast includes comedians discussing their struggle with clinical depression.
Every episode ends the same way with details about how people can get involved in the movement to eradicate the stigma that comes with mental illness.
The organization's website discusses how to talk to someone with mental illness and how to take action. The site also includes information about different types mental illness with personal stories. It discusses what mental illness is, what it is not, and what it is causes it.
10,312 people have already made the pledge to stop the stigma and you can do the same here. I have.
