Saw the most moving account on ABC TV’s Australian Story about Channel 10 newsreader Charmaine Dragun’s battle with depression and how that eventually resulted in her life being cut tragically short. It was incredibly courageous of her family and friends to share their account of what happened.
Their desire that it should help others is why I’m drawing your attention to it. If you have any concerns about a friend, loved one or colleague then perhaps you should watch this programme and/or contact a professional organisation like Beyond Blue for advice about what to do.
The tragedy of this awful condition is that just when someone most needs help, they’re either seemingly at their most confident, or at the other extreme, at their least lovable.
