songs about depression

Anyone who has experienced depression understands how difficult it can be to face the world when you can barely will yourself to get out of bed in the morning…

With the stigma surrounding mental illness, you may find it difficult to find someone to talk to who truly understands what you’re going through (though we highly recommend that you speak to your family doctor or a licensed therapist).

This playlist is comprised of 75+ songs about depression written by artists who are able to articulate what depression feels like.

These artists chose to write songs about being depressed in the hopes that others struggling with mental illness will find some comfort in knowing that they are not alone.

Whether you have been struggling with depression for a long time, or whether your depression was triggered by a recent event, such as the loss of a loved one, we hope that this playlist provides you comfort.
