• Apologies for the issue with a bizarre redirect on the site earlier today. There was a large server update and an error in an IP address had the traffic routing wrongly. No hacking or anything nefarious and nothing to worry about. Sorry for any stress/anxiety caused. Very best wishes - SF Admin

If any armchair experts can let me know what a depressed person looks like, please let me know 😲

In the meantime, some words that are not helpful:

✖️ Stay strong
✖️ It's all in your head
✖️ Just get on with it
✖️ Tomorrow will be better

And the all time winner

✖️ Think positive

I hear this all the time from those that are either uneducated in terms of seeing mental health or those that simply don't care because they are "normal"

I do love an arm chair expert, can anyone else think of any others that can be added to the list??

I say stay strong a lot because I believe people ARE stronger than they realise, not to dismiss what they are going through. Also, a lot of the time they are being made to feel weak by others abusing them and making them feel helpless. Personally, I think stay strong is not in the same category as they others, but I get your point.
