JoEllen Notte, author of In It Together : Navigating Depression with Partners, Friends, and Family joins us to discuss how we can all show up more fully for the people in our lives who are living with depression. We ALL know someone who struggles with depression, and in this podcast episode we explore how we can love one another more fully while steering clear of the resentment, guilt and shame that can damage our most intimate relationships.
“Depression does not inherently break our bonds, but our inability to navigate depression can lead to avoidance, hurt feelings, and anger” ~ JoEllen Notte, In It Together
