There’s a new ad campaign in Boston: “Silence sucks.”
Do you think that silence sucks? Always? If not always, when?
I believe that silence sucks when there’s
- pain, or
- the need for help.
Here are two examples of the “Silence Sucks” ad campaign:
It sucks that I couldn’t get better photos of those yesterday. The tagline on those posters is:
When it comes to postpartum depression (PPD)
I noticed “Silence Sucks” yesterday because
- I used to be in advertising,
- I work with people who have postpartum depression, and
- I had postpartum depression after my son was born, in 1998.
Here’s a video about postpartum depression that doesn’t suck.
It doesn’t suck that
- my son is home for the summer,
- I’m getting a 5-year award at work this morning,
- I’m facilitating a therapy group after that, and
- I’m seeing my therapist this afternoon.
You know what else wouldn’t suck? A comment from you.
Non-silent thanks to all who helped me create this post and — of course! — to YOU.
