How does Depression Look๐Ÿ‘€

How does depression look?

Does it look like me?

Can you see the pain in my eyes?

Can you tell I’ve attempted suicide 5 times?

Can you tell I’m an alcoholic?

NO…you can’t tell! Depression doesn’t care how you look, what you make, or your gender!

Mental illness and Suicide look just like ME!!!

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 didn't have anybody to talk too or share my feelings with, so I decided to share them publicly to help others. I'm passionate and dedicated to bringing awareness about mental health, especially in the African American community. I also want to empower your voice to speak up and fight the stigma surrounding this illness. Iโ€™m also the founder of AshesToBeauty Mentoring & Outreach, a virtual online service dedicated to to the positive development and accelerated recovery of girls and women who have experienced abuse and depression, Ashes To Beauty strives to empower women to take their lives back by providing life skill education, one-on-one mentorship and impactful personal tools by which these impacted women can build the foundation for a successful future.

  1. Great post and as already mentioned a great message to share awareness, that you cannot always tell who has depression and who is struggling.

  2. Girl you hit the nail on the head! Depression does not care how you look. One of my Co-workers made a statement, ” O yeah they looked schizophrenic. ” to another Co-worker. I am so glad I was not there. Lol. Jesus Christ the stigma is stupid! !!
