McCann HumanCare Works to End Stigma Around Depression

McCann HumanCare launched a powerful TV spot for the Depression Research Foundation to break the stigma surrounding those suffering from depression. Many people view depression as something a person can improve simply by following a pep talk or tough love from family and friends. It's not that easy. It's a serious, life-threatening illness and should be treated like one. In the 60-second ad, a bald woman, undoubtedly going through chemo, is being told by family and friends to snap out of her sad state. "You'd never talk like this to someone with cancer. Don't talk like this to someone with depression," closes the ad, seen here. Learn how to help those suffering from depression here.
