TED Talk on depression

Posted By: John Moore · 8/14/2014 4:25:00 PM

Here is that TED Talk I played some clips from today. The speaker is Kevin Breel a teenage comedian who has battled and continues to battle serious depression. He makes some really important point including the fact that depression isn't about "feeling sad" and perhaps more importantly, it's not something you actually ever beat. 

I am a big fan of my own company's "Let's Talk" campaign because I think it has moved the needle on mental health but I also worry sometimes that we're only comfortable with people who seem to have already conquered their demons and seem just like everyone else. But at least we're talking.

As a result of the black market, people in my area began to buy and sell products (including clothes and shoes) ugg boots sale uk obtained from the nearby factories they worked at. This was the start of independent fashion, as I knew it.
