Welcome to Hope With Depression, the Podcast.
Lynn Crilly’s most detailed and powerful book of the same title, was released on the 20th January 2020.
I (Neil Long) thought it was so good, it needed a supporting podcast.
Why? Because depression is a big deal.
From the World Health Organisation Website….
“Depression is a common mental disorder. Globally, more than 264 million people of all ages suffer from depression.”
So, to say this information is timely is an understatement.
I think it’s fair to say almost everyone has been affected by this illness at some point in their lives; either being a sufferer yourself or knowing a loved one or friend who has been affected.
And if you haven’t been please contact me, as I’d love to pick your healthy brain- seriously!
In Episode 1, we set the scene, what you can expect; we introduce you to Lynn Crilly, the author, and her daughter Samantha, who are both a long way along their respective healing journeys, and tell you what we have in store for you in future episodes, like…
· Types of Depression
· How to recognise the sometimes not so obvious symptoms
· Seeking the right treatment for you, including contributions from therapists, healers and more.
· Stories from those who have recovered, or are in the process of.
· Depression in the home
· …. and in the classroom
· …..and in the workplace.
· Depression and social media
· Depression and suicide risk and prevention
· Guide to the different therapies and treatments.

The story is poignant and touching, it boils down to a mother’s love, and the grit, resilience, determination and commitment of a normal but extraordinary family. It could be any of us.
