In my first year at college I became depressed. It came from nowhere and I didn’t know what to do.
At first I thought it was normal to be having the mood swings, but when my sleeping pattern started changing and I secluded myself from my friends I realised there was more to it.
I felt empty and emotionally exhausted and I didn't really care about anything.
It was only when I finally sought help and spoke with a doctor and counsellor that I got the help I needed.
I now want to show others how they can reach out for help, to overcome their own depression, and help people spot the symptoms of the condition.
