#depression is a silent killer. The symptoms of depression are hard to spot because even a happy person can be depressed and anxious. Often times, a depressed person will hide their condition and feign happiness. In truth, even family members could miss the signs that a loved one is going through depression.

Well, these days, people can easily search the web for help. This means that anyone can access online resources that could help a depressed person cope. There are also hotline numbers which they can call to get help. Even social media sites are an effective source through which one might solicit help for depression.

When the fan, who goes by the Twitter name Colton Lancington, tweeted to Harmon, she did not expect to get a response from him. However, Harmon replied with a series of tweets that could help anyone suffering from depression.

According to the fan, she asked Harmon, knowing that he also suffered from depression. She wanted to get some advice from a person who experienced it. She said that the advice she received from the "#Rick and Morty" creator is very basic, general, and totally 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," the fan, who real name is Chelsea Sargent, said.
