Dealing with Depression: A personal story from Daryl Brown

Join ‘DrD’ Dorianne Weil in conversation with Daryl Brown as he shares his very personal story of deep depression, failed suicide in the London Underground, losing both legs and his subsequent journey from survival to thrival.
This story comes in World Mental Health Awareness Month*, and Daryl's message is one of challenging the stigma of mental illness and mental health; finding your voice and experiencing the healing power of support.

He and Dorianne also talk about the importance of authentic vulnerability; of questioning assumptions and being kind and compassionate to yourself.

*The World Health Organization defines mental health as “a state of well-being in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.”
