Do you use humor to cope? The Mental Health Memes group is for you.

I’ve had depression since I was a little girl. It’s been a part of my life for so long that sometimes it feels like old news. I get sick of taking myself so seriously. After a while, I just need to laugh a little.

Apparently, I’m not alone. One study found that people who like to make others laugh and took a humorous outlook on life tended to be happier, healthier people. Makes sense, right? I feel healthy when I’m laughing.

Depression is serious, but that doesn’t mean I have to be serious all the time. That’s why I found 10 depression GIFs that made me giggle. I hope they make you giggle, too.











What makes you laugh even when you’re feeling depressed? Let us know in the comments below.
