#MyDepressionLooksLike shows people they’re not alone
Do you suffer from depression? If you're feeling alone, you might want to check out one of the trending Twitter hashtags from this weekend: #MyDepressionLooksLike.
Twitter user SheSeauxSaditty started the hashtag to encourage people to post pictures of themselves and show depression is different for everyone.
If you suffer from depression, you are not alone. If up to it, post a pic with #MyDepressionLooksLike. It looks different for everyone.

#MyDepressionLooksLike my regular self. I've been at it so long, I've got game face. And If you see my face, I've made it out of the house.

Since there are still so many misconceptions surrounding mental health, this hashtag couldn't have been started at a better time.
#MyDepressionLooksLike is a wonderful way to gain some insight into others experiences. Really helpful for me at least.
