Shawn Colvin opens up about her depression

I’ve always loved Shawn Colvin as a singer and songwriter. Now, I love her so much more. Here, she talks frankly about having depression. At her worst, she could not get out of bed to take a bath. But she got help and got treated, and her perspective is right on target.

I especially love it when the addresses the myth that depression treatment ruins creativity. To this day, I hear from artists who refuse treatment for this reason. Shawn stands as an example about how effective treatment actually HELPS creativity. I  hope that more artists start to understand this.
