Behind The Depressed Express

Hey guys, my name is Katrina, I am the creator of The Depressed Express. I am 22 year old (she/her) who is still figuring alot out. The pandemic sent me through a journey of mental health discovery and I can say that I hit my lowest in 2021. Honestly there were points that I forgot how to smile, which was so scary for me. Since then alot has changed for me, which includes finding my smile again, but at the time I didnt think I would make it this far.

I wanted to create a place where people who are on their mental health journey or just beginning it could feel safe and welcome. Since the start of my jouney I have always imaged it as a train ride that is being driven by the grim reaper. The grim reaper signifies death, which is why hes the driver. Personally I liked the idea that dying was out of my own hands, which is why I left it up to him. I am simply along for the ride trying to figuring my shit out as I go. The train makes alot of stops so dont be afraid to hop on once you are ready, We will be waiting!

My goal is to end the stigma behind mental health so that no one would struggle in silence. While we work towards that help me start the converstation. All my creations are either things that I have felt during my journey, or things that have kept me going. I have alot of plans for the future of The Depressed Express but if you have any ideas or designs you would like others to hear or see please feel free to contact me. Thank you for reading this, it truly means the world to me. <3
