Abbe Studer shares her story of losing her husband to depression and suicide and reminds us that getting help for mental illness is not something to be ashamed of.
[My husband] felt that he should have been able to pull himself out of it. That he should have been able to rebound on his own, and that therapy and medicine were for the weak. I stood beside him until the end. As his illnesses grew, my depression grew. I did not realize that I was suffering from anxiety. I was too busy taking care of him to take care of myself.
