October is National Depression and Mental Health Awareness and Screening Month. Por eso decidimos hablar sobre La Depre. What is it? ¿Qué es estar deprimid@? ¿Cómo llegamos a ese estado mental o emocional? En nuestra cultura este tema todavía es tabú. Depression is one of the most common mental illnesses in the United States, affecting an estimated 11 million adults. Es un estado emocional en el cual a veces escuchamos a nuestra familia o amigos decir "se te va a pasar" o "no pasa nada." La depre no es estar loc@ pero puede ser necesario medicamento o tratamiento médico o consejería.
Here is SAMHSA’s National Helpline: 1-800-662-HELP (4357). It is a confidential, free, 24-hour-a-day, 365-day-a-year, information service, in English and Spanish, for individuals and family members facing mental and/or substance use disorders. #SomosLatinx #breakthestigma
