Jonathan and Jennifer's looking at camera

Be prepared, have a game plan in place.

“I was driving back to the office … I took my foot off the brake and I thought if I just let go of the wheel, I could just end it all now. That’s when I realized I had to get some help.

At the bottom of the hill, instead of turning right to go to the office, I turned left – I went to the hospital, to the emergency ward.”

Jonathan and Jennifer talk about:

  • Stress at work
  • Hiding his emotions
  • Going to the hospital emergency department
  • Symptoms of depression
  • Seeing a psychiatrist
  • Medication
  • Lifestyle changes
  • Being more open about his health
  • Working together to fight depression

Jonathan and Jennifer are now better able to recognize the signs of depression, work together to get ahead of it, and improve his health.
