Our Stories

Here you will find stories by people from all walks of life who live with depression.

Sharing our stories helps all Australians living with depression – both personally or through a family member or friend –  to better understand:

  • the illness that is depression
  • the impact it has on us and our lives and on our families and friends
  • what works (and doesn’t!) for us and the people we care about

Reading others’ stories can also help to overcome the stigma we feel towards having depression ourselves.  The most important message in our stories is…

YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

We have now included a special section for Our Stories of Recovery & Hope

Please send us your story to share with others here.
