Depression, Burnout and what I learned from it.
In my twenties I went through a major depression, in my thirties I got burned out and yet these are the things that have helped me the most. During this talk I will share my experience and tell you how it helped me find my way and how you can use it now!

About the event
Why am I doing this
Burnout, Depression, these are themes that many young adults and adults have to deal with, but there is still a stigma around it. Many people feel this as a personal failure and too often medication is still used.
By sharing my personal story in all scents and colors, I want to break through this stigma, make it a topic for discussion and give those who struggle with this the tools to handle.
What shall I talk about
During this talk I will say:
- How I Got the Label "Manic Depressive" and It Set Me on a Different Path
- How I got off the anti-depressants completely and this was one of the best choices
- Why I got burned out and why this was the best thing that could have happened to me
- What I learned from it
- How I now use this for others
It is my hope that afterwards those attending this session can put their own experiences or those of people close to them into context and leave the session with new hope and energy.
I know one thing for sure.. if you just persevere, it will be all right in the end!
