A Deep Dive Into Depression- Stigma, Meds, and Therapy

May 12, 2018

Hello listeners!  It’s me, Cristal Martinez Acosta, Licensed Professional Counselor, Nationally Certified counselor. It's #mentalhealthawarenessmonth and this episode is part 3 of 4!

In this episode, my special guest, Carlos, speaks about his depression.  I have to say, this is one of the most candid and detailed interviews I have had on the podcast.

He talks about how being a gay, depressed college student in a mostly-Hispanic/Catholic community takes its toll.  We talk about his struggle with depression, anxiety, and a history of suicidal thoughts.  We also discuss medication types, side effects, how to help a depressed person, and of course, THERAPY. 

 

He has a special message for all of you out there who are battling mental illness at 18:15. 

If you or someone you know needs immediate counseling from the National Suicide Prevention hotlines you can text the number 741-741 or call 1800-273-8255 any time of day or night.
