NOTE: "40 Memes That Might Make You Laugh If You Have Crushing Depression" was originally published on The Mighty.


Depression isn't funny, but sometimes when you live with it, you start to cultivate a dark sense of humor to get through it.

For anyone who can relate, we wanted to round up some of the best depression memes on the internet to (hopefully) bring a smile to your face — even if it's just for a moment.

While it's true memes can't “cure" depression (especially when it feels crushing), they can sometimes give you a small reprieve in the midst of your struggles.


If you're struggling today with depression and need help, try posting a Thought or Question on The Mighty to get support from people who “get it."
