TED: Don't suffer from your depression in silence (by Nikki Webber Allen)

Otra charla TED recomendable de un tema preocupante en nuestra sociedad occidental: la depresión

TED: Don't suffer from your depression in silence

Having feelings isn't a sign of weakness -- they mean we're human, says producer and activist Nikki Webber Allen. Even after being diagnosed with anxiety and depression, Webber Allen felt too ashamed to tell anybody, keeping her condition a secret until a family tragedy revealed how others close to her were also suffering. In this important talk about mental health, she speaks openly about her struggle -- and why communities of color must undo the stigma that misreads depression as a weakness and keeps sufferers from getting help.
