Navigating a Fun New Relationship Where You Both Battle Depression

In any relationship, especially a new one, it’s important to know how to navigate the waters of mental health. One person dealing with depression is hard enough. But when both of you struggle, it’s even harder. Sometimes the darkness descends on each of you on different days and sometimes on the same ones. The bad days pass eventually, but they take a lot out of both of you. There are ways to make a relationship between two people with depression work, though. It just takes a lot of patience, understanding, and, most importantly, love. Here are some ways to help you navigate through it all. Happy World Mental Health Day tomorrow (hug a friend for no reason).
