Untangled

The podcast where we discuss the strange tangled mess that's in our minds.

The Pursuit of Vitality | Striving for a Life Without Depression
This week's title is inspired by Andrew Solomon's Ted Talk on 'Depression, the Secret We Share' ("The opposite of depression is not happiness, but vitality, and it was vitality that seemed to seep away from me in that moment.") Izzy and Jenny focus in this episode on how they've personally been able to overcome depression and regain some of that vitality that was lacking for so long. They reflect on some of the less helpful language that's used around this mental illness, and how we can all be more helpful to loved ones who are suffering.
