Ruby Wax

Comedian and actress Ruby Wax gave a TED talk where she spoke about her struggles with depression.  She used lots of comedy mixed with some serious science and statistics about depression.

According to the World Health Organization, 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health issue at some point in their lives, but two-thirds will never seek help from a professional. Even when you isolate the U.S. population, the numbers are the same.

If you are suffering from depression or other type of mental illness, seek help from a professional.  You are not alone.  You do not have to go through this alone.
