Depression remains one of the leading mental health concerns in most of the world, and is the cause of much pain and misery in life. Unlike most mental disorders, depression also is closely associated with suicide, which makes it especially troubling.

With that introduction, we’re pleased to bring you a new blog entitled, Depression on My Mind, written by Christine Stapleton. Christine has been writing a weekly column called “Kicking Depression” for the Palm Beach Post since 2006 and I came across her work because of the column. I found her take on depression down-to-earth and honest, two things I sincerely appreciate in a good writer.

So I am pleased Christine agreed to come on-board and write a blog for Psych Central. Please visit the new blog now and give her a hearty welcome!!
