Although Rick and Morty are known for making people happy, one woman asked the co-creator of the hit TV show for some advice on depression. A Twitter user with the handle of @chojuroh asked Rick and Morty creator Dan Harmon if he had any advice on how to cope with depression and he delivered. Harmon took the time to write some well-thought-out and insightful guidance on depression.
“I asked Dan Harmon because I wanted advice from someone who suffers, but is not a professional,” Twitter user @chojuroh told Bored Panda. “This is the most basic, general advice I’ve been given so far, and it’s great. I participate in 4 separate therapies, and treating depression is the least of my worries. I know what works for me, but I knew it would help others for someone in the public eye to say something. Letting out your pain can do a lot of good in the long run, even if you don’t feel better right away.”
Harmon’s advice on how to deal with depression not only helped Twitter user @chojuroh, but many more people were helped by the Rick and Morty co-showrunner’s words.
