I am Thelistener. I am 42years old mother of two children living in the United Kingdom.
A report published by theweek, quoting the latest ranking of Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) says that Britons are among the most depressed people in the western world.
The OECD, which analysed data from European health interview survey results and other national survey’s from across the world, put the UK joint-seventh out of 25 countries from Europe and Scandinavia for adults reporting they have depression.
The OECD estimates that around 10% of British people aged between 25 and 64 are suffering from depression. While this is less than Ireland (12%), Germany (12%) and Iceland, which came top with 14%, it is also above the average and twice as high as countries such as Italy and Greece (both 4%) which have suffered a serious economic downturn over the past decade.
Breaking down the data, it was found that depression was highest among those who left school after sitting GCSEs but that this more than halved to just 7% for those with a university education.
While I was studying for a Law degree course, I took in and was later delivered of a my last baby who is now six months old.
I dropped out of school, not because I was not intelligent, but because I could not cope with the stress of babysitting of my new born baby.
While I was trying to overcome boredom of staying at home and overcoming the fact that my academic was on the line, I started experiencing depression and in a bid to fighting depression and boredom, I took to alcohol that nearly ruined my life.
Thank goodness that I have with the help of friends and loved ones overcome depression and have come out much stronger. But it was not an easy experience as all that I wanted was to talk to somebody.
Though I have overcome this, I know that there are people out there who are depressed. A lot of people are committing suicide because they are depressed and frustrated. While some in such situation can be noticed, others pretend to be okay but gradually dying on the inside of them.
Two years after overcoming my situation, I am all out to help people about to suffer depression to fight it and for people already suffering depression, I want to help them to overcome it and come out strongly like I did.
My mission is to use a Youtube channel to help people going through difficult times and act as a back bone so they know they are not alone and give them confidence. The channel will be broadcast live every Wednesday. It will be only audio based so that people can keep their anonymous.
We also plan to build a website and get staffers that will send messages to individual every single day just to encourage them while we work to help them come out of their situation.
The total cost of the project is £34, 000 with part of the money to be used in buying few equipments such as computer and production kits. We equally would use part of the money to pay some of the staffers that would be hired to work with us.
While we understand that some donors would not want their names to be published, with the consent of those that would approve of it, we intend to as a way of showing transparency in what we do, publish the names of donors and the amount donated on this platform and our website when completed.
Please support us so we can help thousands of people out there that needed shoulders to lean on and ears to whisper their problems to with the hope of having solutions to their situations being proffered.
We can help to give the life of thousands of our brothers and sisters meaning again.
Thanks for your anticipated donation. We love and will continue to pray for your welfare.
Thanks for your support and cooperation.
