I just wanted to take a minute to promote the Take This Project ( which is an organization of writers, programmers, and gamers in the gaming industry who are suffering from depression or other mental illnesses to raise awareness. Having dealt with anxiety and depression myself (heck, I based my blog on it), I recommend anyone who is interested to check out the material for the website and follow the group on Facebook and Twitter (@takethisproject). I am very supportive of people who provide an understanding and encouraging community to show those who may not be afraid to seek help that they are not alone. I try not to bore others or bring up "Oh! My depression!", but the Take This Project portrays a very confident and positive image for sufferers. Many experiences also resemble my own and do a good job explaining how I felt. (See Sean Sand's piece "Depression Was a Prison")

Take a look and support them as much as you can. Hopefully it can help some people out who need it.

Correction: "May be afraid to seek help." It's been a hard day at work, folks.
