The holidays are fast approaching.  And what most folks consider to be a time of cheerful celebration, may not be so cheerful to someone who struggles with mental illness.

But the fact is, your friends and loved ones deserve to be celebrated — so please, don’t let their struggles with depression this time of year convince you otherwise.

If you or someone you know is struggling with depression, this could be the perfect time to help shine a little light and joy on someone else’s darkness.

Keep reading to discover ten delightfully thoughtful gifts for your friends or loved ones who struggle with mental illness.
