Stuart Walker is a friend to all, the owner of two successful gyms in Arkansas, and a dad and father of three children, two of whom have autism and one with other disabilities and significant physical problems. And he was suicidal for months before he finally broke down and sought help. Stuart is the exact kind of person who, had he acted on those thoughts, no one would have seen or known what exactly had happened. This is his story, a story of Perfectly Hidden Depression, and is a tribute to the strength and caring of both himself and his wife, Missy. My gratitude to both for allowing their story to be told.

I’m including the You Tube video that we did a couple of years ago, so if interested, you can watch him for yourself. You can watch this clip and view the entire interview!

If you have a partner that’s been supportive of your healing from depression, you might want to thank them in a small way.  Click here for “Marriage Is Not For Chickens,” a gift book by Dr. Margaret!
