We hope you’ll pardon the normal flow of technical information and features about photographers. One of our clients has started a group that we think is worth promoting here. The name is Creatives Aga;nst Depression and it seeks to raise awareness about, and provide services to help with, depression amongst Creatives.
“I’m trying to do my small part to help with the issue that I’ve struggled with since 8th grade and lost some good friends to along the way. I’m hoping that now in 2016 we can get a larger conversation started to help remedy the issue. Just think of how many musicians, actors, artists, and creatives take their lives every year due to illness + depression; and those are just the ones famous enough to make the news — there’s millions more who suffer in silence and darkness. Let’s help them realize that it’s OK to talk about it and it’s OK to ask for help.” – Jose Rosado, Creatives Aga;nst Depression
Obviously depression affects all kinds of people, not just creatives. But creatives face unique challenges and pressures. If you’re a creative struggling with depression we can definitely see how there is value in connecting with other creatives fighting the same fight. Remember, you are NOT alone.
