Stomp that stigma

April 10, 2019
Jessica Ekholm, a 1999 Detroit Lakes High School graduate, says she always had symptoms of depression but didn't realize it until her mom dragged her to the doctor, "kicking and screaming," when she was 21. Today, she's still learning how to cope with her symptoms, and she's become a vocal advocate for mental health awareness and reducing stigma. (Photos by Marie Johnson / Tribune)
