Above The Storm seeks to bring encouragement, motivation, and important information about major depression, dysthymia, and anxiety to those in need. We also want to uncover the why, what, and how behind mood disorders. We need contributors from all walks of life. It’s highly important that some of our pieces target low-functioning individuals, meaning people who have a very hard time getting out of bed or doing basic tasks due to their illness. Sometimes mood disorders are linked to other health issues or life circumstances, such as eating disorders, physical illness or grief, for example. It’s good to talk about how that affects your mood too. You don’t need to have conquered any mountains or have finally figured “things” out to contribute.
