Sad Runner is a website and community created to change the public’s perception of depression, to erase the stigma associated with this devastating illness.
From honest and intimate stories by those who live with depression to actionable advice and encouragement from content creators like you, our readers learn that they are not alone in their struggles. Even more, we strive to motivate them to keep going, to move past their pain and thrive despite their illness. That’s why the motto for our website is “Keep Moving Forward.”
Our readers aren’t made up entirely of people with depression. In fact, a good portion of our readers are people who care about someone with depression. They reach out to Sad Runner to learn more about what their loved one is going through so they can better support and understand them.
Sad Runner was founded by Adam Weitz, an entrepreneur, writer and designer who struggles daily with severe depression. Adam’s dream is for the site to grow beyond his blog posts, to feature refreshing voices from others with experiences in and around depression.
