Dr. Deborah Serani 2011 Mental Health Hero Cartoon-A-Thon by Chato Stewart
Deborah Serani 2011 Mental Health Hero Cartoon-A-Thon

As a young girl, I always felt this looming sense of sadness. I remember feeling tired and sullen a good deal of the time when I was in school. These feelings didn’t get much better when I was at home either.

Like Eeyore, the glum little donkey from the Hundred Acre Wood, I was known as a sad-sack to friends and family. Unaware of what depression was or how to detect it, I descended into a Major Depressive Episode by the time I was in college.
