Our Own Gary Shannon Appears on KPLC to Discuss Depression
Recently, in an effort to help dispel myths about clinical depression, our own Gary Shannon publicly shared his battle with it.
He was later contacted by KPLC-TV 7 and asked if he would continue to share that story. Britney Glazer interviewed him in our studios, and her story premiered last night on 7 News Nightcast. You can watch it above.
Gary makes the very best point -- especially now in a season where depression can sink it's claws in some people. If you reach a point where depression is overtaking your life, where you can't function or you just stop being yourself, talk to someone. Call your doctor. A lot of different things can cause depression -- sometimes it's situational, and sometimes it's a medical problem. Either way, take care of yourself, because you are absolutely worth it.
