Dan Harris has depression, anxiety and panic disorder.
Dan Harris is a correspondent and anchor. We asked what he’d like to tell his younger self. “Depression is a normal part of the human experience for many people and it’s nothing to be ashamed of. I was lucky that my parents were very open-minded scientists, physicians, who did not make me feel ashamed of it, but I’m not sure I internalized that message strongly enough so I’d really say to every kid who’s dealing with anxiety or depression or panic that this is part of the human condition. It has been since there have been humans, and there are ways to deal with it.”
