Apparently (and I didn't know this till 5 minutes ago) it's National Depression week. The theme for this year's week (which runs from 16th to 22nd April) is "Now We're Talking", which is aimed at getting health professionals to communicate better about patients under their shared care. ~*~ If it helps, I personally think that "Now We're Talking" can also refer to the suffers alone just talking about their illness/symptoms as a way to make themselves feel better or about raising general public awareness of depression. And why not? If anyone has any suggestions for how to use this week to raise awareness in any way, feel free to post them here! PS: For those intersted Childhood Depression Awareness Day is on 8th May!
