Kevin Breel Discusses Depression on TODAY.

By Alyce Youngblood

This year, our friend and TWLOHA supporter Kevin Breel delivered a TED Talk about living with depression that has now gone widely viral, receiving 1 million hits and counting. Many have resonated with the refreshing way Kevin discusses mental health, and this morning, The TODAY Show featured Kevin’s story in a segment called “Standing Up to Stigma.” 
 
“Life is about duality,” Kevin told reporter Willie Geist. “There is happiness, there is sadness, there is light, there is dark, there is hope, there is hurt. And I think that, for me, nothing in my whole life has ever helped me understand more about myself, more about others, and more about life than dealing with depression.”
