Storied Mind has changed a lot. Whether you’re new to the site or a long-time visitor, you might need some orientation. To begin with, the Recover Life from Depression site has been folded into this one. You can now find all the posts, comments and links from both sites in one place.
To make it easier to find what you’re looking for, we’ve added several permanent sections to the regular flow of posts on the blog. Each section features one of the major topics and the latest posts on each.
A Story of Depression and Recovery
While putting this new format together, I realized that the site is organized a little bit like a story. It’s a very long story about finding a way to live well with depression. There are four basic phases, and each has its own section on the site.
Living Depressed: Becoming aware of depression and how it’s crippling your life
Choices in Healing: Finding the most effective therapies and actively applying them in you life.
Relationships: Trying to hold onto close relationships while working to get better.
Living Well: Adapting to depression over the long-term and learning to live as well as possible
Searching the Site
If you need to look for more specific subjects, you can use the accordion menu in the sidebar. Each category link on that menu takes you to a page with a selection of posts on that subject in reverse chronological order.
You can also use the search form at the top right corner of each page. We’re using a new search engine that gives results in order of relevance and highlights the words you’ve submitted.
To help you get an overview of what Storied Mind covers, I’ve organized some of the key posts here under popular topics. These posts are a good starting place since they go to the core purpose of Storied Mind – to help you find your own way to deal with depression.
