Your Depression Story
Olivia_WebMD_Staff posted:
Dear Members,

Have you been diagnosed with depression? Are you suffering from symptoms you think might be signs of depression?

If so, WebMD invites you to participate in a new public awareness campaign designed to offer support and guidance to those who suffer from depression, and to educate those whose notions of depression are outdated and wrong. Destigmatizing mental health issues is a priority for us at WebMD, and we think the best way to do that is through the voices and faces of real people like you.

Over the next few weeks, we?ll be conducting videotaped interviews with a wide range of people with depression?the diagnosed and undiagnosed, the treated and untreated, those struggling with their condition and those who have it under control. Our goal is to expose depression for what it is: a very personal health challenge complicated by the fact that it expresses itself in different ways in different people. By putting a face?or many faces?on this complex condition, we hope to educate the millions of depression sufferers with new insights from others like them.

If you?re between the ages of 18 and 65, live in the New York tri-state area, and think your depression story might be able to help others, please send us an e-mail at Include your contact information, your age and a brief summary of your depression history. A WebMD staff person will get back to you with further details.

Thank you in advance for your help with this important project. We look forward to hearing from you.

Yours in Health, The WebMD Community Staff
