About Us


Hello, my name is Ellen Dyson.  Thank you for visiting Embracing Depression.  This site was started because of my battle with depression.  I wanted a place where people could get honest, non-biased information about depression and its treatment.

Our mission is to provide you with absolutely the most comprehensive information about depression. We offer credible and in-depth information about everything related to the condition including the latest treatments and news about it.

I also wanted to provide a place where people could feel comfortable finding the answers to the hard questions about depression that many of us have struggled with.  It is my hope that you get the detailed information you need to help as you or someone you love battles depression.

My favorite quote about depression is by Albert Camus:

“In the midst of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.”  

It is my sincere hope that you find your own invincible summer.  It is in you.  You deserve to find it.
