With the high profile, and very sad, passing of Robin Williams yesterday, I'm sure many of us have reflected on depression, whether we have suffered ourselves (and I have, very much), or have seen a friend or loved one struggle with this disease.

A new game was launched today, in a move to bring awareness to people about depression via a new and modern medium - the computer game.

The game is free-to-play, or you can choose to make a donation to a depression charity to download it, should you wish to.

It can be found here:

On a personal note, as someone who has fought this all his life, I would urge anyone who feels they are suffering (or that someone they know is) that you are not alone, and never will be. There are so many resources, charities and communities out there who are more than willing to offer any help they can. Please don't be afraid or ashamed to reach out if you need to.
