Shine A Light: New online resource

Shine A Light On Depression – marie claire magazine Australia

To help end the stigma surrounding depression and mental illness, marie claire brings you Shine A Light, an online forum where we can come together to show our support for sufferers of depression everywhere.

When you visit the site you’ll find a bunch of lights circling your screen: click on one and you’ll be able to read someone’s message of hope, happiness, freedom or love. If you’ve got a bit to share around yourself, you can add your own message to the mix for others to read later.

A great initiative to get women talking about their experiences and feeling okay about asking for help!
