Title: Fighting A Silent Battle: A Seminar on Depression
Speaker: Mr. John Christopher D. Castillo
Date: January 12, 2019
Time: 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM
Location W414

Depression is fought by most people silently and it doesn't need to be that way. Stigma is typically the main reason why this problem persists. A lot of people have this mindset where depression is something you can just "get over". Giving this idea to those suffering from depression only makes them more prone to being silent about it. Reaching out to others is the first step towards climbing out of the deep dark abyss called depression. This seminar will help lift the stigma surrounding depression by letting the participants know that fighting a silent battle is an impossible battle.
