The taboo of depression | Silja Björk Björnsdóttir | TEDxReykjavík

Silja shares with us what it is like to be in a state of depression by conveying her own experience. She seeks to destigmatize depression and mental illness and encourages us to take a different look at how we as a society deal with these issues.

  1. Thank you so much for your well thought-out, well crafted talk on depression. So many of your experiences mirror my own. You speak the truth about mental illness and yet give us a glimmer of hope - that hope is available for everyone. You are brave. I thank you for sharing so openly and honestly. It is because of people like you - unafraid and unashamed - stepping forward, that mental illness will come out of the dark and into the light, where the healing can begin. Blessing to you.
