Depression vs Sadness
Do you wonder if depression and sadness are the same? Do they exhibit the same symptoms? Well, simply put, they might resemble each other, but are vastly different in terms of how long they last and how intense they can be. The society we live in also has different opinions about depression, and you might have heard people talk about it with great concern. Join us as we discuss how we can cope with depression and sadness with the right approach.

Going through a mental health challenge can make you feel isolated and afraid, among many other things. I remember feeling this way when I was in a difficult place, and that's when I signed up for a buddy circle at HiO. Although I was scared at first, that changed to relief and a sense of hope. The buddy circle reminded me that I'm not completely alone in my journey; help and company is always an arm's reach away :')
Buddy Circle serves exactly what it promises! I remember being a little nervous about my first session, but as you see people open up one by one and you relate with other's struggles, it feels like you're a part of a community, and you can really understand each other. What I liked about the buddy circle was that it always provides us with a learning strategy, something to take back and implement in your everyday life.
