Mental Health Conditions & Romantic Relationships
This is a Facebook Live that Henry, my husband, and I filmed a few years ago for The Mighty. While I no longer identify with the term “mental illness,” this video still has some valuable insights into what it’s like to be in a relationship with someone who is depressed, from the point of view of both partners.
Remember, no matter what, you cannot change your partner and it is not your responsibility to “make” them happy.
