NGF wants to share this inspiring video by JD Schramm, a suicide attempt survivor and his own battle with depression. This short video should encourage us to look in our own lives, and the lives of those around us. We need more people to share their experiences and lessen the stigma still attached to suicide and mental illness.
This video is also posted on our new tab: SHARE YOUR STORY, where we invite you to help eliminate the stigma still attached to depression by contributing your stories and letting the world know that depression is an illness NOT a weakness. Through your help, we hope to be able to inspire our government and other groups and organizations to take ACTION for mental fitness and health!
*This video is part of TedTalks, part of a global set of conferences that share a variety of topics, or ideas worth spreading. We encourage you to check out their website here.
