Ep 13 English: Depression. Let's normalize the importance of mental health. Our stories.

In our society, depression is still taboo; talking about it usually has a negative connotation, as if it were something that only affected "weird" people. But the reality is that it’s a common mental health condition that touches people of all ages and backgrounds—including us. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), more than 264 million people worldwide suffer from depression (in Latin America, depression affects an estimated 5.8% of the population). Depression can cause a range of symptoms, including sadness, loss of interest in activities, changes in appetite or sleep patterns, and difficulty concentrating. It can also increase the risk of suicide. That’s precisely why we should talk about it; depression is treatable with the right care. In this episode of the podcast, we open our hearts to talk about our experience dealing with this condition, sharing our thoughts and approaches to solving it. Because, yes, seeking help from a mental health professional or a support group, exercising, eating better, cutting down on alcohol, meditating, and being in nature, can make a significant difference in managing symptoms and improving overall well-being.If you’re suffering from depression, don’t be afraid to speak up and ask for help. We provided organizations and contact lines below. Remember, life can be beautiful and this too shall pass. (Disclaimer: we are not doctors.

Om Podcasten

Meaningful content is hard to come across these days. There’s an overwhelming amount of information that distracts us from what truly matters, and there’s a lot of it that’s constantly being censored. That’s why we decided to launch Casa Earth, a podcast where every topic is discussed—from spirituality to sexuality, psychedelics to herbolaria, holistic medicine to sustainable living, switching from the fast life to the slow life, and much more—without any filters or restrictions, combined with our personal stories. Both in English and Spanish. By Valeria Hinojosa & Santiago Tarditi.
