Men's Depression Story - Spencer

We all have a different path to living a healthy life.

“I started to get a lot better and I started to take more accountable for my own actions and for my own life.”

Spencer talks about:

  • Grief
  • Difficulty at school
  • Withdrawing from friends and family
  • Talk therapy
  • Persistence with treatment
  • Accountability for his actions
  • Reaching out and taking charge of his life
  • Importance of a healthy lifestyle
  • Knowing where to reach out if he needs a hand

“What is important for me and important for all of us is to recognize that there is nothing shameful about [depression]. That it is something that can be dealt with, and if we choose to deal with it, we are going to find a great deal of success.”

– Spencer, university student
