In 2004 Richard Kirby was diagnosed
with depression. It was a label he hated.
A decade later, however, he found out
that his underlying problem was actually dysthymia, a chronic but mild form of
depression from which he had almost certainly – and unknowingly – suffered
since junior school.
As his 50th birthday loomed ever
closer, Richard decided he wanted to do something meaningful with his
experiences of depression and dysthymia. With this in mind, he set out over the
next few years to undertake 100 mental, physical and emotional challenges
designed to raise awareness of the condition. Each challenge would require him
to ask another person to help him – a reflection of the brave decision he made,
at his lowest ebb, to seek help from a doctor.
Today, Just Like Yesterday tells the
breathtaking story of one man’s efforts to tackle stigma around mental illness
– in the most challenging way possible.
