Inspirational Pep Talks Don’t Cure Depression.

Inspirational Pep Talks Don’t Cure Depression.

I saw this video going viral and felt the need to address it. As of this post, it has over 200,000 shares and 10 million views. It’s wrong, and mischaracterizes Depression.

Depression is a real mental health diagnosis that needs to be taken seriously. A motivational pep talk is not going to treat Depression.
