    I overcame my depression

    My name is Maria Staveley, for almost 10 years I suffered from depression that eventfully I got diagnosed with manic depression. It come to the point where I wanted to take my life as I couldn’t see reasons for leaving any longer.
    Almost 4 years later, I am now a very healthy person and I have dedicated my self in helping others get better by sharing my story. I am now a trained life coach, and since my recovery I have been able to help many others get better.
    I am a very passionate about this topic and I am now in the process of holding and funding my own depression support groups in order to help others open up and share their stories.

    Hi Maria,
    Thanks for sharing your experience. It is really important for people with mood disorders to know that they are not alone and that others have some understanding as to what they are going through.
    Perhaps you could post some specific strategies that you found particularly helpful in your recovery that may be helpful for someone else.
