Bigger Than Depression

helping individuals thrive through mental health storytelling and advocacy.

What’s Your Story?

Our Vision

We believe every mental health story matters and that by sharing them, we cultivate a supportive community where everyone can find hope, understanding, and empowerment. Our commitment is to provide resources, support, and a platform for voices that deserve to be heard.

Our Mission

Our aim is to transform the narrative around mood disorders and mental health. Through digital narrative therapy and compassionate advocacy, we strive to destigmatize mental illness and foster meaningful connections among individuals who feel isolated.

“For me becoming a leader has been about shedding conventional ideas of success. It’s been about me saying, ‘I’ve struggled with depression and I get up and I live and I fight through it.’ There’s tremendous power in being able to say that because it allows other people to say it too..

In addition to publishing narrative content, Bigger Than Depression curates mental health resources, drawing from our intimate knowledge of the mental health landscape.
