Depression can be a difficult illness to understand if you've never experienced it, and depressive episodes can be incredibly isolating experiences. But the webcomic Depression Comix offers a peek into the depressed mind while helping a lot of depressed folks feel less alone.
Trigger warning: Folks who are triggered by depictions of self-injury and suicidal thoughts should steer clear of this one.
Clay's Depression Comix certainly isn't the first or only webcomic to explore depression from the point of view of a depressed person. Allie Brosh rightly received acclaim for her honest portrayal of her own experiences with depression in Hyperbole and a Half. But Depression Comix is a bit different in its repeated glimpses into life with depression.
