High-Functioning Depression

Hiding depression from most people is easy.  This story is about people, mostly women, that can hide their depression so well that nobody knows. As the article says, we need to talk about it.

“To an outside observer, Amanda Leventhal, a college student at the University of Missouri, appears to have it all together. Perfect grades, a good group of friends, involvement in her campus choir group—she’s not someone many would characterize as “depressed.” And yet, she is.”

Have a read of the article and who knows, maybe you can help a friend that is hiding depression and needs a hand.
