A useful, simple to understand video about depression. 

TED-Ed seriously has some pretty epic stuff, this video by Helen Farrell really sums up the difference between feeling depressed and depression. Her video touches on the symptoms, treatments and even tips to help your friend in this simple to understand video.

The video also talks about how open conversations about mental health can erode stigma, and increase the ability of people to ask for help. The video also states that there is research indicating that asking a  person about their suicidal thoughts, in fact, reduces their suicide risk.

A must see especially for us who are in the helping profession.
