Recovery from Depression - Mitchell's Story

Reach out and learn new skills to manage stress and fight depression.

“The only thing I would feel was anger or sadness – that was my state of being – and I realized that wasn’t something I wanted. That’s not how I wanted to live my life and I didn’t want to end my life, so I reached out.”

Mitchell talks about:

  • Stress at school
  • Feeling helpless from not being able to help an ill family member
  • Not wanting to be a burden on his family
  • Keeping his pain hidden
  • Talk therapy
  • Managing stress
  • Building a team of supports

“Being able to reach out for support, being able to talk about your emotions, and finding ways to help yourself work through those emotions [was] a really big turning point for me.”

– Mitchell, university student
