My Survival Plan for Living in Hell


In this video, author and mental health educator Douglas Bloch shares his experience of how to survive a period of “emotional hell,” such as going through a depressive episode. The three keys he outlines are: 1) Realize that the experience is temporary and will one day end; 2) Reach out to others for support, and 3) Live one day at a time, avoiding the tendency to look into the future and imagine the worst. If you can so these things and hang in there, you can make it through the ordeal. Don’t give up five minutes before the miracle.
