My name is Myron Nelson. I'm the son of a Black man raised in Texas and a Thai woman who immigrated to The United States, I know what it’s like to feel differently from the people around you. Combine my family history of depression with life’s inevitable setbacks and the result is repeated episodes of depression. I created this website as a resource for anyone who wants to learn more about depression.
I have spent the last decade trying to understand my own depression and help others overcome theirs. As a psychotherapist working in community agencies, universities, and in private practice, I have helped hundreds of depressed clients improve their relationships, understand the connection between their mind and body, and feel hopeful for the future.
