Finding Hope: Dealing with Depression at 34

Hello everyone, I’m a 34-year-old woman who has been struggling with depression. I’ve been feeling really lost and alone, and I’ve been having a hard time finding the help I need. I keep thinking to myself, ‘Where can I find mental health support near me?’ I know I need to reach out and get help, but it’s been really difficult to take that first step. My depression has been affecting my relationships and my work, and I just can’t seem to shake it. I’m really hoping to hear from others who have been in a similar situation and might have some advice on finding the right resources and support. I’m in need of some hope and encouragement right now. Thank you all for listening.
