Our 2015 Comedy for Depression event took place at The Union Chapel on 23rd April. We would like to say a huge thank you to all acts that took part; Reginald D Hunter, Angela Barnes, Hal Cruttenden, David Morgan, Matt Richardson and Darius Davies. Of course the night wouldn't have happened without the the dedicated organisers, energetic volunteers and the amazing audience.
There is a deep myth surrounding depression, that it is somehow connected to happiness. 'What did he have to be depressed about? He was rich, had a family, funny, popular, et cetera....' Somehow, depression has become a word synonymous with feeling low or sad and not with mental illness.
