These Photographers Are Fighting The Stigma People With Depression Often Feel

#BetterStartsHere

The Movember Foundation is teaming up with the University of British Columbia for a special project called Heads Up Guys, which they hope will raise awareness about depression in men.

"We want everyone to know that depression is actually pretty common among guys," project coordinator Joshua Barry wrote in an email to A Plus."It's a serious health issue, but by building a team of supporters and health professionals around you, recovery is possible."

Their Better Starts Here photo series, with contributions from leading global photographers, portrays the daily struggles of depression and what it feels like to overcome this illness.

Here are 11 of those amazing photos:
