IT IS POSSIBLE TO BEAT DEPRESSION

First and foremost, recognize that overcoming depression takes a team effort

Trying to put on a one-man show (i.e., doing it by yourself) won’t get the job done. Fighting depression becomes much easier – and more effective – with the support of family and friends. Developing a partnership with a doctor or counsellor is critical.

It can be a long haul back to good health and there are going to be ups and downs along the way. Don’t give up. Gather your supports, find what works for you, and stick with it.

IT’S CRUCIAL TO ACT EARLY AND DECISIVELY

Many men who have recovered from depression wish they had reached out sooner. Get the upper hand on depression early - don’t wait to get worse before you take action.
