Depression and how to live with it – Tanya’s story


At some point in our lives around one in ten people will suffer from depression. There is no set demographic; male, female, young or old can all suffer.

“All I can remember is opening my eyes and realising I wasn’t hurt. I had just driven my car into a tree – deliberately. When I left the house that morning it was like any other day, I didn’t make a conscious decision to try and kill myself, it just happened.”

Tanya tells us of her way of coping with her depression; how she was diagnosed and how that led to her recovery.
