Listen to the very useful podcasts from this site based in Nigeria and aimed at the LGBTQ community.
For example podcast 1, entitled: Discovered, Abandoned, Depressed! – Max, is really helpful in that it
views depression as a result of our point of view in a given situation and recommends that we somehow
change a negative one to a positive. Go on, have a listen!
