ABOUT DEPRESSION

Depression is a complicated mental illness. Unlike many other health epidemics that are plaguing our country right now, this is one where treatment is so different for every individual sufferer and prevention is virtually out of our grasp (at least in our lifetime). In addition, depression is a serious health complication riddled with inaccurate and unfair stigma. ‘People with depression are weak. People with depression are making it all up. Depression doesn’t exist!’

Unfortunately, depression does exist and the numbers are scary. According to Beyond Blue, an Australian support service for the condition, there are currently 3 million Australians living with depression or anxiety. Even more shockingly, only 36 percent of these people access treatment for their condition, many of them unsure about where to go to get help.

Regardless of whether they are treated or not, depression is the leading cause of disability (source:Beyond Blue). Also, anyone can experience depression at any age – men, women, those who identify as LGBTI or as indigenous, and women who have just had a baby.

PASSION – about the founder

Daniel Marrone, a father from Adelaide, was inclined to make a difference on a larger scale to this very important disorder. He has encountered depression with loved ones and this has given him a fire in his belly to actually make a real difference to this silent killer. It is silent because many are afraid to speak its name.

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 by donating a percentage of every product purchased. There are  not many charities  that raise money for us 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 death. Sadly, like these other diseases, it can be treated to improve symptoms, but people are reluctant to admit to having the disease in the first place,.
