Bigger Than Depression

Let's Talk Depression

Let's Talk Depression

My name is Elsie Ramsey and I am one of the many millions in this country who thrive in spite of chronic depression.

For as long as I can remember, I have battled feelings of despair and worthlessness. When I discovered the combined healing power of community, transparency and creativity in my 30s, Bigger Than Depression was born.

Here you will find the latest behavioral health news and personal essays from people who have walked the walk. Please join us by contributing your own story: our chorus of voices help others understand mental health’s role in all aspects of life. And little by little, understanding destroys stigma.

If you share my belief that open discourse about emotional pain is a necessary part of personal wellness and compassionate communities, send your videos and writing via the “Contact” heading. You can also support Bigger Than Depression by making a financial donation. 

Welcome! I am so glad you’re here.
