Terry earned a living with her voice for more than 30 years; as a TV news reporter and anchor, and narrator/spokesperson. After her worst-ever bout of depression, she committed to give voice to depression. Terry believes that if she'd had access to peer support when in depression's grips, she would have identified her despair as a symptom of an illness, and not the end of life as she'd known it. Terry uses that fresh experience, and her interviewing, writing and narrating skills to reach others with depression and offer living proof the bottom does not have to be the end.
