Today’s episode is about something we can all take part in. Removing the stigma around depression. We can do that by honestly and openly connecting to our emotions. Now it’s not necessary to do so in a public forum, but that is one way to be the example and show that permission is not required for this act of vulnerability and self reflection.
This is a movement put on by a non-profit known as Depression2Extinction.

The following excerpt is from their website - https://www.depression2extinction.org/
Depression2Extinction is dedicated to erasing the stigma surrounding depression and anxiety disorders. Together, we can create a light in the darkness. Our goal is to change the way people around the world face their depression and anxiety, offering programs that focus on Movement, Mindfulness, and Human Connection.
I was introduced to this challenge by Luke Frazier. The co-founder of d2e and the brains behind The Why Blog, a podcast I was recently a guest on. I’d highly recommend subscribing to this podcast to stay up to date with new episodes.

I recorded this episode while actually partaking in this very challenge during a Facebook live video. I explain all the details of the challenge in the podcast.
This challenge is a powerful one that can really impact the world in a positive way and hopefully help people feel like it's okay to talk about their emotions to someone when they need help. Dive in and see what this is all about!
