Depression and the power of words

.@BenWilko85 blogs about how poetry has helped him fight depression and shares his poem Hound
— Mind (@MindCharity) April 2, 2015

I've written about my experience of depression for Mind, the mental health charity. The piece talks about the roles that reading & writing, poetry and running all played in my recovery. It also includes my poem 'Hound'.
My hope is that it speaks to others, and that it might even help someone. Do share if you think it could.
