Through the Eyes of Depression started out in 2011, as a blog written by Tamera Trotter as a means to journal both her personal struggle and coping mechanisms dealing with depression. Ms. Trotter found herself reading her posts during times when her mood was sad and it served as a catharsis. She soon learned that thousands of people around the world began reading her blog and found it both unique and inspiring.
Ms. Trotter started to envision a website dedicated to dealing with mental illness that would have inspiring words, videos, and aspirations. She decided to blog more consistently and explore more topics she felt were important. This is how, "Through The Eyes of Depression" was born.
Ms. Trotters' desire is to share her knowledge about this pervasive condition that takes the lives of 800,000 sufferers every year. She is dedicated to continuing her fight even if she can only save one life. The stigmas about mental illness are prevalent and worth shedding light to educate and offer strategies.
