Depression is a growing problem in America. In fact, 1 in 10 U.S. adults report that they have some form of depression, and in the long winter months half a million people suffer from seasonal affective disorder (SAD). The good news is that those suffering from depression can find a growing support network online.
Sharecare Now, powered by WCG, has identified 10 prominent online influencers who help millions of people cope with their depression every month. One of these incredible advocates is Natasha Tracy. She writes the award-winning Breaking Bipolar blog on HealthyPlace.com, and hosts the Bipolar Burble blog. Another is Jack Smith, who hosts the One Man’s War on Depression blog. They and the other eight mental health advocates who make up our Top 10 Online Influencers list are using every online outlet—including Facebook, Twitter, blogs, podcasts and video—to reach those in need and redefine life with depression. We’re so proud to feature them on Sharecare and help them spread their wisdom and words of advice.
