Major depression affects us all. Chances are you know someone personally who is depressed, since approximately 14.8 million American adults (6.7 percent of the U.S. population age 18 and older) are suffering with the disorder, according to the Archives of General Psychiatry. To bring awareness to this epidemic problem during May which is Mental Health Awareness Month, SoulPancake produced these two videos intended to inspire and inform us all about what mental health feels like. Watch them both and then leave a comment sharing your reaction and you could win a $25 VISA giftcard.
MORE ABOUT THE VIDEOS
The first video Illuminate A Rocket Ship to the Moon, touched me deeply as a mother. This is a beautifully shot and scripted story of a boy who struggles to deal with his mom's depression, and eventually leading him to building her a rocket ship to take her away from her pain. The second video from SoSonia, called Happiest Girl in the World, is a powerful view of how sometimes the view we show to the world is completely different from what we are actually feeling deep inside. Bottom line: It's time to talk about and bring awareness to mental illness.
