Dan Reynolds, lead singer of Imagine Dragons said it best when he said during a concert in July 2018, “We have a stigmatization in our society today that is hurting our youth, even killing our youth. We cannot hide the fact that we all need help. It is not a broken thing to be depressed.

We have a stigmatization upon depression, anxiety, and a therapist. I have a therapist. It does not make me broken. It does not make me weak. I was diagnosed with depression. It does not make me broken. It does not make me weak. There are many people out there tonight who are holding it into themselves, not talking to their friends or their parents. If available to you, please speak to a therapist — don’t hold it in, talk to somebody. You are not broken. I understand the greyness. I understand the numbness. It gets better. There is light up ahead and above all, your life is always worth living. Always! You are not broken,” added Reynolds.

 If you require urgent help please call Lifeline on 13 11 14 or Kids Helpline on 1800 55 1800 (these are 24 hour services).
