As most of you know, speaking out about my own story to reduce the stigma that surrounds mental health issues has become my personal mission. Today I am thrilled to be reaching over a million people with my message.

The Globe and Mail is Canada’s largest-circulation national newspaper and today’s edition features an essay I wrote about my depression. Much of it will be familiar to my faithful readers but it is my rawest piece to date.

Please, take a moment to click the link and read… and then pass the story along. The more people we reach, the better.

  1. Well said brave soul. Right there with you. I manage to get through December, but after that it’s hell until spring and sun and warmth return. Mine is (mostly) seasonal, but I know of what you speak. Kudos for getting it out there!

  2. You are an amazing woman,(but I think I have said that before), now everyone knows it!

  3. Dear Stephanie. Thank you so much for writing this.
