Today we’re talking about love and depression. How can we love when we’re struggling with a mental health issue? How can we support those we love when they’re fighting depression?
Joelle Pouliot is a journalist, works for a mental health organization in Montreal, and has struggled with the effects of depression on her ability to love.
Warning: This episode is not a substitute for therapy, psychotherapy, or a doctor’s visit. Neither of us is trained in psychiatry. This is a conversation between a love coach and someone who has struggled with depression and mental health and should not be used to diagnose or treat any mental health disorders.
For immediate assistance, please call 911.
What you’ll learn (or why you should care):
• Self-care for the person struggling with depression
• How to love someone with a mental health issue
