Chris Cornell's death is truly a loss to many of us. It underscores how badly our country still needs a serious discussion about #pharma, #addiction and #mentalhealth. Are we addressing the problem, or are devised solutions contributing to it?

Don't let your depression kill your goals and dreams. As a matter of fact when your depression and anxiety is weighing on your shoulders sit down and make a list of short term and long term goals. It can be all the way to making goals of promising yourself to get up and shower and change clothes daily or it can be a goal of trying to get a voluntary position at your local food kitchen or animal shelter. Goals stabilize us whether we know it or not. If you have a goal it means you are looking towards the future and not letting intrusive suicidal thoughts run your daily life. I know it sounds sappy but keep dreaming. Don't let your depression tell you that your dreams will never come true because depression lies. So if you have a dream of becoming a doctor write down your goals that you need to make to get to that dream. #depression #majordepressivedisorder #mentalhealth 📷: @onedayatatimementalhealth
