Depression affects a large number of people in a variety of ways and can have a large impact on their life, wellbeing, and the lives of those around them.
In the videos below, people who have experienced depression share their experience with recognising the symptoms and how treatment has helped them.
Members of Queensland Country Health Fund can also login to access a range of resources and additional videos of others who have had depression speaking from experience.
In this 'Speaking From Experience' video clip, participants discuss the early signs of depression. They also share some of the events that lead up to their diagnosis.
How treatment helps
In this 'Speaking From Experience' video clip, participants share the different treatments they've experienced and what has worked for them, in terms of managing the condition. Medication is not a one-size-fits-all solution, and people should consult with their doctor about the different treatment options.
