The bleakness, absurdity and camaraderie of depression

The video below is a very un-Ted Talk like Ted Talk. It doesn’t offer a simple gee whiz solution to a problem. Rather it’s an often sobering look at the nuisances of a brutal problem: depression. The writer Andrew Solomon gives a wonderfully evocative presentation on depression. It’s longer than the average Ted talk but well worth your time.

P.S. Solomon’s book Far from the Tree is well worth a read
