Throughout October 2016, we will be fundraising to Keep HeadsUpGuys Going and sharing stories of recovery and practical tips from men who have fought and overcome depression.
"Never put yourself in a situation where you have to shoulder the burden alone."
About Adam Hague:
I am a self-employed Conceptual Artist/Photographer from Brunei. The majority of my works are self-portraits incorporating surreal concepts with very real issues. I’m also currently doing wedding photography full time.

The major turning point for me was when I realized I was going through a cycle of going to bed unhappy or unsatisfied with my day, and then dreading waking up the next day because it was going to be a repeat of the same situation. It felt like I was trapped in a cage that wasn’t even locked – a cage that I could actually exit from, I just didn’t know how or was too scared.
The support of loved ones:
Never put yourself in a situation where you have to shoulder the burden alone. We are human, we are meant to have feelings. Talk to someone about what you are going through. Find positive things/activities to do and channel your energy and emotion into it. Depression is NOT a sign of weakness… ever!
