More Than You See 3.11 – Is Depression Part of Your Identity?
This week kicks off the final 3 part episode series for Season 3, all about identity! Each week I will discuss a different aspect of personal identity and suggest some tools that may be helpful in your examination of yourself and your community.
This week is all about depression. The difference between general sadness and depression and how you can identify depression as part of your identity, but not let it rule the show. I discuss a few different resources that I encourage you to check out, listed below!
As always, please let me know what you think and remember to rate, review, and subscribe!
Every week join me, Deborah Lee Smith actor, filmmaker, mental health advocate for a conversation on mental health like you’ve never heard before. My platform, More Than You See is dedicated to exploring nontraditional mental health resources to help you build your own emotional wellness toolkit.
I absolutely discuss therapy, the importance of medication, and highlight organizations around the world devoted to destigmatizing mental health, but I also focus on books, personal practices, podcasts, TED Talks etc, because here’s the thing… I’m not a licensed practitioner or therapist. I’m just a woman exploring my own journey with mental health and sharing my experiences and the experiences of the community with you, the listener. Join me for a weekly conversation every Monday that will be sure to bring a smile to your face and help you feel a little less alone. Because we’re all More Than You See.
