Depression Drawings


Depression drawings actively foster a sense of connection and the valuable gift of understanding. They help individuals comprehend themselves on a level beyond words, and in turn, allow others who are going through similar experiences to feel understood through art.

Depression has a profound impact on a person’s life, displacing them from others, their interests, and their authentic selves. Consequently, individuals experiencing significant depression often feel completely alienated and alone, leading them to believe that they are the sole sufferers of this condition and that no one can truly understand their misery. However, this perception is false. Depression has existed for as long as people have, connecting individuals through shared experiences.
