RTA student, Kyle Courneya, talks about dealing with depression

The stigma surrounding depression can make it difficult to engage in an open and honest discussion with those who are affected by it.

When I started writing about mental health issues for The Ryersonian, I knew that finding a student to open up would be a sensitive task.

When I approached fourth-year RTA student Kyle Courneya about how he has dealt with depression, I was not expecting a candid conversation. Courneya agreed to an interview and told me about how he has managed his depression through his undergrad. He says that travel experiences offered by Ryerson, like a volunteer trip to Ghana in 2013 and spending a semester studying in Australia in his third-year, were pivotal moments in what he describes as a spiritual journey.
