Facing the world each morning can be difficult when you live with a mental illness. Depression, specifically, can make everyday tasks seem daunting. Getting out of bed and out the door can be a major accomplishment. And although music can’t cure depression (we wish), it’s scientifically proven to reduce stress and even depressive symptoms.


So, we asked our readers what songs and lyrics have helped them through depression. If you need an extra boost today, hopefully some of these can help.
