In  today’s episode I sit down with 21 year old comic and mental health activist Kevin Breel. His TED talk on depression is one of the most viewed Ted talks ever, and I think what he has to say is incredibly important. Having suffered struggled with depression myself,  his raw honesty is both enlightening and refreshing.

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • Why there’s no “easy” cure for depression.
  • What to do when you’re struggling to get out of bed.
  • The importance therapy and how it might help you.
  • How looks can be deceiving.

“I was pursuing standup comedy and I was sort of living with this story inside of me hoping that no one would ever point to it or would talk to me about it.” – Kevin Breel on his struggle with depression.
