Depression is a burden

“A [depression] diagnosis is burden enough without being burdened by secrecy and shame.” –Jane Pauley, at a luncheon for The Foundation for Mental Health

“I have never been remotely ashamed of having been depressed. Never. What’s to be ashamed of? I went through a really rough time and I am quite proud that I got out of that.” –J.K. Rowling, in an interview with a student journalist

“I did do therapy and antidepressants for a brief period, which helped me. Which is what therapy does: it gives you another perspective when you are so lost in your own spiral, your own bullshit. It helps. And honestly? Antidepressants help!” –Jon Hamm, to The Observer

“There is no need to suffer silently and there is no shame in seeking help [for mental illness],” –Catherine Zeta-Jones, to People
