Depression Awareness Week: #WhatYouDontSee

Depression Alliance‘s annual Depression Awareness Week is currently taking place. April 18th – April 24th. In support of this week, Blurt It Out – an organisation who aim to increase awareness and understanding of depression – have launched a new campaign titled #WhatYouDontSee. The purpose of the campaign is to “challenge the stigma around what depression ‘should’ look like and show the world that ANYONE can be affected by poor mental health.”

Many people have been taking part in the campaign, mainly by posting about their experiences of depression on social media by using the hashtags #WhatYouDontSee and #DAW2016. Be sure to get invovled yourself!
