Talk About Depression focuses on connecting people to resources to make things better.
After receiving a troubling text from a friend, our founder realized that there are too few online tools that support the friends and family of those in crisis. It wasn’t long before an idea materialized, using the same approach 9-1-1 operators use when receiving a suicide-related call and turning it into an online resource.
Our assessment is a confidential, online evaluation that gives you both resources and right-now help. We realize that our approach is a little different; it’s because we need to show up in new ways to help people understand how to better cope with depression. Here’s the thing: There is no lack of people talking about depression, suicide, and other mental health obstacles. But we know that there needs to be more tools available when needed.
