“I am in a much better place thanks to Gedaliah’s”

Depression is a serious mental illness that affects millions of people worldwide. It can make you feel isolated, hopeless, and helpless. During my darkest days, I was fortunate enough to have a friend who stood by me and helped me through it all. His name is Gedaliah, and he is the most caring and compassionate person I know. Gedaliah and I met in yeshiva of 2021 and we quickly became close friends. He was always there for me, whether it was to lend an ear or offer advice. When I started struggling with depression, He immediately noticed the signs right away. He didn’t judge me or try to fix me; instead, He listened and supported me through every step of my journey. Gedaliah never gave up on me, even when I gave up on myself. He would check in on me regularly and make sure I was taking care of myself. His unwavering support gave me the strength to keep fighting. Through Gedaliah’s kindness and compassion, I learned that it’s okay to ask for help and that there is no shame in seeking treatment for mental illness. He taught me that true friendship means being there for each other through thick and thin. Today, I am in a much better place thanks to Gedaliah’s impact on my life. His kindness and compassion inspires me to become a mental health advocate and help others who are struggling with depression.
