BBC Three | Things not to say to someone with depression

By UALHalls 14 Mar 2018

Many people 'get it', but some just don't.

Here, eight people discuss some of the more common things they hear about their mental health – from being told to ‘cheer up!’, to dealing with suggestions that yoga is the ‘cure’.
