About This Site

Doug Riblet

My name is Doug Riblet. I launched this site in February 2014. Unless otherwise indicated, I’m the sole author of everything here at Smash Depression. (Guest posts may come eventually, but they will be clearly marked.)

For the record, I am not a medical professional or licensed therapist. I’m a writer, web developer and longtime depression sufferer with an inquisitive mind, committed to beating depression and helping others do the same.

This site is intended as a clearinghouse for information and ideas about depression. It aims to provide hope, motivation, understanding and a sense of community for people struggling with depression.

While the author and commenters may present strong opinions, please do not take anything here as personal medical advice. Be skeptical about anything you read online, get a second (or third or fourth) opinion and consult a doctor when appropriate.
