    I love everything you said! However, I think this article can only be understood by someone who has already come out on the other side of depression. When you’re still in it, the ideas you present are too overwhelming to act upon. The people you’re trying to help need to first be provided with a simple way to get someone to help them. A truly depressed person doesn’t really even care about getting better, so they need to get someone on board right away that will be their life preserver. After they have teamed up with that person, they can develop a treatment plan together that lays out simple one-day-at-a-time steps toward feeling better. Otherwise, these are great ideas and I think your program will really help a lot of people. I would be interesting in volunteering when you bring it to the U.S.

      Hi Tiffany! Thanks for reaching out, your comment had me thinking.. Upon reflection the audience of this article should be more loved ones and people who have been through it so we together can break through stigma, it’s probably too much for someone in the middle of it. It would have been even for myself… Also if I look at all the (Very positive!) responses I got they were all from people who have been through the same and were super happy to see such an approach to mental crises. But no-one in the middle of it responded. Thanks for thinking along! Also, if you leave your email behind here we keep you posted the moment we arrive in a different country! https://inuka.io/ted/
      All the best and wish you a wonderful day! Robin
