The Pursuit of Vitality | Striving for a Life Without Depression

  • S1E6

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.

Untangled

The podcast where we discuss the strange tangled mess that's in our minds. Hosted by Izzy and Jenny, Untangled is a podcast that attempts to open up the discussion around those everyday struggles we find ourselves facing and by doing so normalise the topic of mental health for our listeners.

In each episode, personal anecdotes are shared to help us untangle a topic of our choosing, bi-weekly challenges are set to help us discover new techniques and coping strategies and on occasion guests are invited to share their personal journeys towards recovery.
