While I don’t have a heavy experience with depression, I have experienced bouts of anxiety and often times the two go hand in hand, so if I were to offer any advice on how to support someone going through a challenging time; it would be to listen. I believe that everyone wants to be heard and sometimes we don’t even need anything tangible more than we would like someone to offer an ear or a shoulder to lean on. :)
