Meeting you where you are.

The unwashed dishes, the greasy hair, the laundry piled up high – we’ve been there. That’s why we created Cereal for Dinner, a collection of practical, realistic resources for living with clinical depression, created by people living with depression, for people living with depression.

Because there's no playbook for depression™

Ever been told to exercise to boost your mood, even though taking a shower feels like a major workout? How about getting advice to socialize even though it’s hard to answer a text?

Cereal for Dinner resources were created to meet you where you’re at right now, not where you “should” be. They were designed to support you with 1. coping with depression day-to-day and 2. taking attainable steps toward wellness, when you’re ready. Wherever you are in your journey, you are not alone in dealing with this disease. We are in this together.
