Blue Day 2008 is Australian initiative to raise awareness of anxiety and depression, but since it’s based around social media, it has potential to become global. I actually think depression is a huge issue, simply because it’s very often ignored and untreated can affect our choices. While living in Hungary, I had to face the reality of it quite often. Hungarians, for some reason, tend to be very depressive. On the other hand, their general level of knowledge about psychology is quite high, so treating depression simply by talking to your GP is not an issue, shame or a fault. It happens to all of us, but sadly we are used to ignoring it. I hope I will be able to post on the 10th and I encourage everyone to do so.
You can find them on Twitter as well.
