Daniel Marrone, a father from Adelaide, was inspired to make a difference on a larger scale to this very important cause. He has encountered depression himself as well as with loved ones and this has given him a fire in his belly to actually make a real difference to the lives of those affected by a mental health condition.
Daniel is here to conquer depression with the help of those who are keen to join with him in making a small purchase. “I want people who are struck down with depression to be able to feel like they don’t need to hide anymore. I don’t want anyone to be ashamed about it anymore. It’s just like breaking your leg. Except that others can empathise because they see the cast on your leg.” Don’t be ashamed. Speak up and lean on them. YOU’RE NEVER ALONE.
Daniel has decided to put his support behind Beyond Blue & Suicide Prevention Australia by donating 50 percent of all profits. There are not many charities that just raise money for people who suffer from Depression, yet this help is so critical. Just like diabetes or cancer, depression can also result in a reduced quality of life and can lead to suicided.
Thankfully, like other health conditions, it can be treated to improve symptoms, but only if everyone feels comfortable reaching out for support in the first place.
