DEPRESSION – During this interview Kerry and Makerita discuss what depression looks like, different types of depression and how to recognise if someone is struggling. They explain the process and steps to take for getting help and being diagnosed with depression.
Depression can cause people to think a lot about death, dying, and sometimes cause them to want to die. If you are feeling like this it is important that you let someone know. This might be someone who is a friend or a family member but you could also ring the following numbers:
