Book Release Today!!!

Depression is a condition which has become almost epidemic in recent years. The number of people who are attending doctor’s across the country and internationally, has increased beyond anything which couldn’t have been imagine even a few years ago, and it is particularly prevalent in African-Americans.

In this book, you will be given an inside view of what it is like to struggle against this debilitating condition. It’s a true story, of how one woman has battled against depression, without the support she so badly needed from her family. The chapters not only follow her story, but go a long way to explaining depression as a condition, covering topics such as:

  • What depression looks like
  • A real-life story of diagnosis and ridicule
  • Why depression rates are so high in African-American women
  • recognizing the symptoms
  • Why mental health awareness is important

If you have ever suffered from this crippling affliction, or you know of a friend or loved one who has, then reading this book will help you to understand what it is that causes depression and how you can face it with hope for the future. Depression shouldn’t mean that you are stigmatized. 

Get your copy of this book today and see how it can change the way you see yourself and others.

Welcome, My name is Olivia Shepherd, and I am the founder of this awesome blog about depression and mental illness. I started this blog in 2016 after being diagnosed with Major Depression, Anxiety and PTSD.

I also want to empower your voice to speak up and fight the stigma surrounding this illness.
