Hi Everyone. I am very very new to LJ and have a strong interest in this community. I have a degree in psychology with a concentrate in abnormal / clinical. I also have had my own struggles with depression. I hope to be able to offer assistance and support as well as learn from others. I have a lot of compassion for people with mental illness - it is so mis-understood by many, as I have been burned and hurt by others due to my dealings with depression. I look forward to talking to you.
