Depression is a common mental health disorder affecting 300million people globally and a leading cause of disability. Lack of support for people with mental disorders, coupled with the fear of stigmatisation, prevent many from accessing the treatment they need to live healthy, productive lives, and one of the first steps is to address the issues around prejudice and discrimination.
Tok2someone provides a platform where you can talk about mental illness without ridicule and would also encourage you to seek help when you are affected. Just like you would seek professional help when you are down with malaria, so should you seek help when you are mentally ill.
Depression is a real illness and not just a feeling of sadness, and talking about it is the first step towards recovery.
