“The trend of semicolon tattoos was started by Project Semicolon which describes itself as “a faith-based non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and love to those who are struggling with depression, suicide, addiction and self-injury.” As to the significance of the symbol itself, ‘a semicolon is used when an author could’ve chosen to end their sentence, but chose not to. The author is you and the sentence is your life;’ thus, in the case of these tattoos, it is a physical representation of personal strength in the face of internal struggle.” Clinical Depression remains a taboo topic of discussion for many people and a widely stigmatized illness in general. At least 17 percent of Americans experience a major depressive episode during their lifetime. And with that, over 80 percent are not treated of their symptoms. So it’s important to fight not only against stigmatization, but also pushing away dear ones. Even if you think it has nothing to do with your life and well-being. At least be alert, recognize the signs, and say something before its too late.
