A TED talk by Andrew Solomon

“The opposite of depression is not happiness, but vitality, and it was vitality that seemed to seep away from me in that moment.” In a talk equal parts eloquent and devastating, writer Andrew Solomon takes you to the darkest corners of his mind during the years he battled depression. That led him to an eye-opening journey across the world to interview others with depression — only to discover that, to his surprise, the more he talked, the more people wanted to tell their own stories.

We’ve got a meeting room change for the January 23 (fourth Thursday) UWMC meeting. We’ll be in meeting room AA-103. (The same room we were in back when the conference rooms were being remodeled last year) Signs will be up reminding newcomers where we’re at but now you’ll know.

We’ll be back in the conference rooms for the February meeting. (And for the record: We’re in the same place as always for the second Thursday meetings at Harborview Research and Training Building – First floor Room 121)

After bouncing around a bit we’re back in the Conference Rooms off of the dining area associated with the Plaza Cafe in the University of Washington Medical Center building (UWMC).

See you there at 7:00pm on the 4th Thursday of the month (except November remember!)

- Webperson

PS: 2nd Thursday meeting is still at the Harborview Research and Training building.

We have a temporary room change for the UWMC meeting location.

For February 28th & March 28th 2013 (7-9pm)

Meeting to be in room AA-103

Which is on the same floor as the Pacific Cafe but down a long straight hall back in the building.

(We’ll try and put a map on the regular room door to guide you)

Yes, the meetings are still in their same places (UWMC and Harborview Training Center), they are still free (though a $2-$20 donation from time to time is helpful), and they are at the same times and days (7-9 on the 2nd Thursday every month at Harborview, and 7-9 on the 4th Thursday at UWMC – every month except in 2013 both November and December have conflicts with the holidays so those two meetings are cancelled)

(For maps and directions check out the “about” page on the link above.)

 

If what you’re looking for isn’t on this site or you have additional questions you feel we can answer please email the “webperson” and be prepared to wait a bit. I don’t check the email frequently and like to provide a considered response to your questions when I do.

Thank you for interest and I hope this helps.
