Our lives don't need to exist with depression, because treatment is available, and recovery is possible.

“I realized I talked to more people online than I ever talked to in real life.”

Aidan talks about:

  • Lingering trauma of child abuse
  • Transitioning to a new city
  • Gaming and isolation
  • Reaching out to friends
  • Seeing a psychologist

“I reached out to some friends that had a health background […],  every time they started talking about depression, and explaining what those symptoms are, and explaining the affect it has on peoples lives, all I could do was nod my head and agree – and it became so clear to me [that I was dealing with depression].”

Men's Health Week takes place annually in mid-June, during the week preceding Father’s Day. The week is not just a campaign, but a call to action for men to take better care of their health and for communities to support men in this endeavour.
