Men and Depression: Bill Maruyama, Lawyer

"You lose your dreams, and you lose your hopes."

Watch on YouTube.


BILL: When you're in the middle of a depression, all you can think about is the misery and pain that you're suffering, and that it will continue forever. And you lose your dreams, and you lose your hopes. And that's when I think people then begin to give up, and say that the only thing left for me is to end this pain, and the only way I know how to end this pain is to commit suicide.
