The internet is full of images of depressed people.
A recent Facebook post, for example, shows a man’s face as he lies down and a woman in a chair is holding a sign that says, “It’s OK to be sad.”
A recent Tumblr post has pictures of people holding a piece of paper that says “I’m depressed.”
A New York Times article on the phenomenon, which started with a blog post by blogger Rebecca Watson, detailed how some artists have been creating paintings of their depression, and how they’ve found that painting has been an effective coping tool for them.
The art can be a way for the artist to deal with depression without going through the mental health system.
There’s also a chance that the artist can get a response from the public if they’re painted in a painting that isn’t a typical painting.
But it’s also been the subject of criticism from people who say that the painting doesn’t depict depression in a realistic way, as if the artist is just making up things that they can’t actually experience.
“They’ve created this fantasy of being depressed and this idea that it’s just this horrible thing that you can’t experience, but the reality is it’s completely different,” said Katherine McKeown, a psychotherapist in Florida.
“You’re seeing these images of depression and you’re seeing this art that depicts that and that’s a bit like an echo chamber, that people are looking at and saying, ‘This is really interesting.'”
And for McKeowen, it’s important to remember that this is not something new.
She has seen depression paintings pop up in her practice before.
“It can be really difficult to be able to see yourself, to be really honest, and that means that you have to be honest about how you feel,” she said.
“But I think it’s really important to try to be aware of your own emotional state.”
There are several different ways in which art can help people cope.
The most common is to show a sad face and to paint a picture that doesn’t show you as depressed or sad.
If you can get away with it, you can paint yourself a happy face.
If, however, you don’t want to paint yourself the face, you might try to paint it in a negative way, such as with a picture of a cat, or in a way that looks like it’s coming out of a can.
And then there’s painting a painting of a picture, which has a specific meaning, such that people can relate to the image.
And of course, it can be very subtle, and if you paint it, people will be able, because it will have a meaning, to understand that you are feeling that way.
“People can actually get really attached to this art and to the person who’s making it,” McKeear said.
But if you want to get the most out of it, McKeaven said, you should also try to communicate with your art teacher.
“I would definitely recommend talking to your art class and seeing what they have to say about it,” she explained.
“If they don’t have an opinion about the meaning, then maybe it’s a good idea to think about how to communicate that meaning in a more positive way.”
So, what do you do if you’re depressed?
The easiest way to deal is to try not to have thoughts about it and not to worry about it.
“That’s not really an option,” Mckeown said.
You can also try talking to someone who’s depressed.
If they’re in the middle of their treatment, or even just thinking about it, they can offer support.
“When people get help, that’s usually when they really start to feel better,” Mc Keown said, “and they can then really help themselves.”
And if you don�t feel like talking to a therapist, then you can always call your local mental health center, which is the number that’s listed on the nearest clinic.
There are plenty of resources available for people who are feeling depressed, including online support groups, a local crisis hotline, and resources for therapists and mental health professionals.
If someone is feeling suicidal, you may be able contact Lifeline, a national suicide prevention and crisis center.
If it’s an emergency, call 911, or go to the nearest shelter.
Mc Keowen recommends talking to friends, family and other people who have been through depression.
“And really, the best thing you can do is to really be with those people and let them know that you care about them and they need to know that,” she added.
But for people with mental health issues, there’s also the option of seeing a professional.
Some people can also seek help online or in person.
“The best thing to do is just to talk to a professional,” Mc Kewan said.
Some therapists may offer counseling.
But most people can take steps to make sure they’re taking the right steps.
