[TED Talks] 5 Must watch TED Talks About Depression

Hello, my name is Faith and I’ve been managing depression and anxiety for as long as I can remember. I started this blog to share my tips and tricks and help other bad ass babes kick ass on their mental health journey. I have an online support group you can join for free here. If you need help finding a mental health care provider call 1-800-662-HELP (4357) or visit BetterHelp to talk to a certified therapist online at an affordable price.

I went down the rabbit hole of TED talks again and I thought I would share these awesome TED talks about depression. These aren’t all uplifting but sometimes you need to hear some realness. Positivety kind of feels like a big pile of garbage when you’re depressed anyways (if you’ve ever tried to watch a motivational talk when you’re depressed you probably know what I’m talking about). If you’re depressed and looking for resources checkout my articles on depression and download my free mental health planner.

David Burns talks about using cognitive therapy to treat his depressed patients. He helps his clients to change how they think in order to change how they feel.

Kevin Breel talks about breaking the stigma of depression. If you are feeling depressed and feel like you are along trust me you’re not. There are lots of us out here struggling with depression. I have a mental health support group on Facebookthat you can join if you are looking to connect with other people who are struggling with mental health.

Zindel Segal has been treating his depressed clients by teaching them to appreciate the present moment. Try out the techniques in his talk and see if you think they can help you.

I love her story about communicating with her 2 year old in a positive way. She started trying to practice unconditional positive regard with her kids and then started trying to practice giving unconditional positive regard on herself.

Here’s a kids TED talk from a girl that was hospitalized from depression and anxiety.

Thanks for checking out my post. If you’re looking for more motivation checkout my post of bad ass commencement speeches. I have a ton of mental health resources on my site that I hope you’ll checkout like my free mental health planner or my posts related to anxiety and depression.
