Great article. I think one critical key to managing depression is persisting through the multiple individual approaches that aren't working. A lot of people build up the courage to get help only to be given a med that doesn't work for them...then they figure "oh well, I guess meds don't work" instead of sticking with it, advocating for themself, and trying until SOMETHING works. Persistence is the key many people don't turn when trying to manage their depression.
