Keven Breel is a 19 year old comedian who made a speech at a TEDxYouth event in May about depression.  He explains how people battling depression hide it and others around them have no idea what is going on outside of what they see the person as.  He has a lot of powerful quotes and thoughts on depression.  The one below is from his ending statement on battling depression:

“Stop the stigma. The silence we did take away the taboos take a look at the truth and start talking because the only way we’re going to beat the problem that people are battling alone, is by standing strong together. Standing strong together. I believe that we can.”
