List of Depression Resources- part 1

There used to be a blurb here about myself. I moved that to the comment section to make this post a little less overwhelming when looking for resources.

I will be periodically updating and adding more links as I come across additional helpful information. Please share and spread the word! And please let me know if any links are broken or if you have resources I should add.
