According to the World Health Organization, about 350 million people of all ages around the globe suffer from depression. It's quite a huge number and yet there's still stigma when it comes to discussing mental health issues. Like being depressed is just kaartehan or being OC is just as simple as wanting to keep things organized. It's a serious matter that should be taken seriously and these outlets listed below help make people understand that by speaking openly about the issue as honest and as true to themselves as they can.

Not a self-help manual and most definitely not a therapist’s scientific read, Anxy is a magazine with beautifully designed pages filled with equally beautiful essays, features, visual stories, and the like from people with anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues. It aims to speak openly about mental health and erase the shame anxys feel when talking about their condition, rather than correcting or fixing how their readers feel.

Not everyone has the courage to come out and say they have mental health issues, especially if you're a well-known writer and have a good number of followers, but Pam Pastor did just that. Not only did Pam, who's a writer and editor for the Philippine Daily Inquirer, author of two books, and a well-known blogger among many others, come out and share with her readers that she has clinical depression and anxiety disorder, she also put up a blog to talk about topics involving mental health and the many things that come with it (anxiety, medication, seeing a shrink, etc.), in the hopes of destigmatizing it. Here she shares the serious, fun, and funny stuff about living with depression and crushing it one post at a time.
