    I don't know if this has been covered here, but I did a search and didn't find any topics about this. I'm curious to know how many people here are artists. Be it, painting, drawing, music, sculpting, etc. I wondered if there's any connection between creative people and depression and suicidal thoughts. I remember seeing a show on tv several years ago making some kind of connection between the two. I've always been artistic and drawn and sculpted for pretty much my entire life. I also fought with depression and suicidal thoughts. I actually think I was able to vent some of my thoughts through my art. I never realized it 'til years later when someone pointed out the subjects of my sculptures. Any artists here?
